Insight CTS or SCT Livewire

Which one do you guys prefer? Very interested in opinions for both. I have a '04 6.0L, all stock with 100k miles. I don't intend to experiment with tunes. I just want to be able to monitor all parameters and use as a diagnostic tool. Thanks in advance.

I love my Insight CTS...

I have never seen the Livewire in person.. But I'd say you can't go wrong with the CTS... alot of people have the CTS

as far as monitoring, the cts is much cleaner and easier to use i think. the livewire can hold custom tunes though... so if you dont want any tunes, get the cts. if you want monitoring and custom tunes, get the livewire

Love my CTS! I can check DTC's, and clear them while I drive, and can see a lot of very important PID's

I have zero experience with the Livewire though
