SCT Livewire

I've been thinking about putting on tuner on my truck, though then I feel I'd need gauges to go with it. Since everyone seems to like the SCT with custom tunes, and the live wire will plug into the ODBII port and give me digital gauges it sounds like I could kill two birds with one stone.

The question though is how does it look in our rigs. Any body have picks of their install they can share?

Thx
Mark

Well your right that you need gauges and you could rely in the Liverwire monitor, but I would say still with mechanical gauges to get true, actual readings that aren't filtered......also the the Livewire is kinda big and akward so its kind hard to put in the corner of the windshield by the pillar, I have a pic of it on my 6.4, but you could get the idea

TwinTurboStroker: if you've got a pic of yours in the '08 that would be more then I have now. I'm just having a hard time picturing it in our rigs.

Thx

TwinTurboStroker: Thanks... maybe I need to re-think this, my windshield gets cluttered up enough on road trips with the GPS and radar detector.
