SCT Livewire

Looking at a used SCT livewire. What is a fair price. It was purchased for an 06 and my truck is an 04. Does anyone know about the custom tunes. I assume they won't work on my truck. Anyone know how much it would cost to have them installed by a dealer? Thanks for any help.

I don't know if you will be happy with the LW. I purchased one thinking I was saving money on an all-in-one unit. I sent that back the very next day. The read out is cheesy and the entire unit feels and looks like a cheap toy from the local dollar store. Purchase a X3 with an Edge Insight/EGT probe. A little more $$ but worth it.

Oh, and a dealer will not touch your programmer.

There are plenty of dealers that would be more than happy to sell you an email tune, even if you didn't by the programmer from them.

I was under the impression he was speaking of a Ford dealer, not a retailer.

I can see how you might've thought that. First impression I got was that he meant SCT dealer since he was asking about custom tunes.

Thanks for the replies guys. Yeah I was referring to an SCT dealer. I kinda like analog gauges more so I'm leaning towards the X3 now.
