SCT X3 or SCT Livewire

I currently have a Bully Dog triple dog and I want to switch over to an SCT tuner. I noticed a lot of people here run the X3 but I never hear of anyone with the Livewire and I'm just wondering whats wrong with it. Does anyone know if it has a dashmount that comes with it or something? thanks for the info

Get the X3 and put the money you save towards some gauges or a different monitor. My Livewire leaves a lot to be desired in the monitoring department, and it stays in the console unless I need to change tunes.
The Livewire does have a suction cup mount to stick it to your windshield, but the Livewire is big and has to be plugged into the OBDII port to work.

what would be a good monitor to go with it? I was going to the the edge monitor and also the X3 but I was told it was cheaper just to run the Livewire...

I have done a lot of research on monitors and decided to go with the edge insight. Lots of useful data and different color schemes with color/audible alarms. Mine will be in this week!

I had done quite a bit of research and with the help of the guys here I went with the X3 and the Edge Insight with the egt. Excellent package by far. The livewire was just too big. It may be cheaper, but overall the edge is a cleaner pkg. I've got it mounted on the pillar. I really like it a lot.
