Got myself confused about tuners

I have been reading on here about tuners and have got confused. Several months ago the word was SCT with custom tunes. Now I am reading that you need an Edge product.

What about the SCT Livewire? How does it compare?

Re: Got myself confused about tuners

Most use the Edge just for monitoring , it is available in a programmer version also ,, don't get that it still isn't the best for 6.0's and transmissions , The SCT is still #1,, I never heard great things about the live wire and don't know if they ever got them dialed in?

Re: Got myself confused about tuners

the edge product are engine monitors they are not tuners. get the cs or cts. cts is color touch screen ,i have this one. get the edge first to see how healthy your engine is then get your sct

price on the cts $399. or the cs is about $100 cheaper. or you can get a scangage at automotive stores for about $162.00

here a link for the monitors:

Will any of these read EGT? I know that the ScanGauge is very versitle, but I don't think it reads EGT

Re: Got myself confused about tuners

you can buy a seperate probe for the Edge
EGT is not a PID available from the truck like it is on the 08 up
I run a stand alone EGT myself I have enough stuff to monitor with the Edge
