sct xcal3 and insight

guys, i was thinking of selling my juice with attitude and gettting the sct xcal3 and edge insight for monitoring. i have afe stage 2 and 5'' straight pipe no studs yet. i dont really wanna drop the money for pod gauges so would the insight be a good monitor? also is the xcal3 the same as the x3? do you just buy the sct with the three regular tunes on it, then call to get custom tunes? i want eric at idp's custom tunes how many tunes will it hold? sorry for all the questions but i got a tax return from uncle sam and think its time for a safer more powerful tuner:burnout

its a good combo... it will be far cheaper if you just buy the X3 with the custom tunes then if you went and bought the SCT then bought custom tunes...

we can pakage a deal for you with the insight if your interested and the X3 with innovative tunes...

let me know

I run that combo and love the insight for a monitor. It can display any sensor info the computer reads so it is way more flexible than buying 3 gauges. I have the optional EGT probe as well.
