SCT- Livewire versus Xcal2

I am fairly new here and though I understand diesels fairly well the whole flash programmer and all is new to me. I am old school where you took the computer out and hooked up the chip and put it back in.

If you don't want to put in a pillar gauge pod you better buy the Livewire and if you want the gauges just go with the Xcal2. I am sure there are other differences but isn't that the main one? I am going to buy one or the other and I really don't need a bunch more gauges as Tuscany Conversions and already tricked the inside of the truck out pretty well.

Thanks in advance.

I believe the only difference is that the Livewire has the built in gauges. Remember, if you buy the Livewire you need to buy the EGT probe too which will set you back a few more dollars.
