Default SCT Livewire ?

i keep debating on things to buy for my car and this one has came across my mind... is it worth the extra couple hundred or should i just get the xcalibrator2 instead?

Default RE: SCT Livewire ?

i made a post about this other day and did some research on other sites, simple answer... no its not worth it.

reason being- to use the a/f gague you need a wideband/lm1 meter and those cost $3xx and come with the gauge anyway
to use the shiftlight you need a tach adaptor which cost another $8x or so
and it holds an extra tune OOoOo how many do most people hold?? 1 or 2 the same as normal ones do..
basically your paying for bragging rights, i mean it looks cool and all but the extra cash can be put toward better things IMO UNLESS your really a pro. with tuners and need something more advanced stick with xcal or pred. and put other $200 toward mods or dyno tune...
again JUST MY OPINION + some research i did earlier today
hope that helps
