SCT Live Wire - what does it do??

Relative newby to diesel trucks, so pretend I'm not toooo stupid...

OK, so I see the 'SCT Live Wire' on totaldieselperformance.com web site, but I can't get anyone to respond to my inquiry. DP responded right away - is this a clue to how good/bad the product/service is?

The SCT LW:

- I take it that it has tunes - right?
- Ditto it looks like it has gauges?
-- Do the gauges come with temp probe, etc?
-What gauges?
- Most important, can you switch between tunes on-the-go?

Also, I suppose I have to get my stock PCM replaced - or can I get it reflashed so I can see that neat green cruise control light. What are the other benefits, if any? What options do I have for the PCM?

Thanks ahead for all you guru-type-sooty-experts and opinions!

I installed one on a friend of mine 05 with a 6.0.

Very easy to install pretty much a plug and play deal.

The only difficult part is installing the EGT probe.


As far as flashing the computer, you can always set it back to stop if you want to.


The "gauges" are built into the unit. It has a display of your trans temp, water temp, voltage, egt.....(the EGT probe you have to buy seprate).

If you have any other questions send Bill a PM his user name is dfuser
