I'm sure I'll be divorced in the morning when the wife wakes up and see's I spent that much money on toys.... but I'll try to sell her that it will increase her fuel mileage!
I hope you bought the livewire from innovative because if not you'll be going there anyways for tunes. It would have been cheaper to just buy it from the w/the tunes.

Livewire/EGT probe/Dash mount
Innovative = 813.95 + shipping (custom tuning)

Vendor = 469.99 shipped + $80 tuning = 549.99
......at difference of $263.96
I'm on a budget, the extra benjamins paid for exhaust.

Same hear but I got Matt's at gearheads tuning. Still waiting on EGR probe to find best place to mount livewire. But I like the brightness of display cause I can see it clearly. Remember to download the monitoring fix or your temps will show god awful!

That's a great price, who is doing the tuning. There is a big difference between tuners. I also like matts tune. But I run Eric's xrace as my daily driver and it has given me 2-3 mpg over stock w/ 5" turbo back not cat or muffler. An it runs like a scolded dog. But you get use to it. The other day I put it back on stock and I couldn't believe how sluggish it was.

I plan to buy tunes from Eric or Viv.....

I'm looking for MPG mostly so xrace may be the choice for me..... Thanks for the tip!
