can i go wrong with sct livewire with innovative tunes

I have a 2008 f250 and Im looking to put a tuner in it I along with the egr and dpf delete. I have been looking around and reading articles and reviews for a few months, everyone of my buddies has the sct livewire with innovative tunes and swears by them. I was looking at the spartan and the h&s as well but I heard that the spartan is eating engines up due to egts being to high as for the h&s I havent heard to much. I am from Wisconsin so my weather can get pretty cold up here during the winter months. I only haul a horse trailer and a dump trailer every once in awhile so the truck is mostly for hot rodding around. Tell me what your thoughts are just so I can get a little more informed in the route I should go. Thanks

My wife's '10 started off with a spartan and dd the 310 early lock tune. Ran great and the tranny shifted fine, for her anyway. The 210 tow is great as well, I really liked how it drove overall.

Now she has an old style livewire, but she only runs the live tunes on it, due to the mods. H&S has the mcc software out now, so it can be live tuned if you wanted to pursue that path later on. I believe RCD does tunes for spartan, I'm sure there are others. But for custom tunes, the sct is the most widely supported at the moment.

You can't really go wrong with any of the three. I don't know about the ts livewire, but the dasdaq spartan uses is an awesome monitor.
