Livewire TS owners chime in

Well my birthday just passed and I'm left with a little money to spend as I see fit. I've been wanting to put gauges on my truck for a little while now but haven't had the cash flow.

Well needless to say I stumbled across the livewire ts and really like the looks of it. If everything I read is correct then getting that would be the way to go right? Monitors everything I can with gauges and a lot more. With the ability to pull and clear codes and the three custom tunes slots it seems like a winner.

My question is who has it? How do you like it? Since it going into a 99 will it still monitor everything? I like that it has the FCIM voltage as well. Also have you used the tune slots? Who and how did you get the tunes on it?

Is there one company that sells and tunes it? I found one site but never heard anyone talk about them or their tunes.

Before I sink a butt load of money on this I'd like for some input...especially from current owners.

Thanks

this is on the 6.0 section, i see u hav a 7.3. Maybe it will help a bit, idk You can get it almost from any diesel or performance site. Many supporting venders from this site, also ebay and amazon. Quicktricks auto has it and u can choose a custom program if you buy it from them. ( someone correct me if im wrong on that 1)
Anybody using the new live wire ts 5015 yet?

Last bump...going to pull the trigger tomorrow and was hoping for any last input before I buy.

http://www.morepowerdiesel.com/livewirets

Comes with 3 custom tunes. Spoke with them over the phone and their tuner Mike worked for SCT for 6 years they said.

Does anyone else know who will be able to get me some tunes that I can put on the unit for my 7.3?

Ok well it's done! Now I have to wait on the mail system to get it here.

I ordered from MPT just because of the free shipping and the 3 free custom tunes. Their EGT kit was the cheapest I could find too.

Anyone wanna chime In after the fact? I'm still looking for a little input.

Everyone with 7.3's are running custom burnt 6 postion chips.

That is the best option for 7.3's

Yeah I know about them...just wanted an all in one as opposed to buying gauges that will eventually fail and a scanner and then a chip...this was a great option.

They are working on fixing the 7.3 issues just no idea when it will be fixed...I'm not one to sit on a 700 dollar paper weight.
