SCT Livewire, anybody have it?

My birthday is tomorrow and have been wanting an SCT Xcal3 for a while now, but i just checked fswerks and they are now offering a new flasher. i like it a lot and its like the Edge Performance flasher my brother has in his f250 (which i like). I like the fact that it has gauges on it and you can mount it to the dash.

My question is: does anybody have one of these flashers and if so would you be so kind as to give a little review (what you like and dont like).

Check it out!

Thanks in advance.

The Livewire is not new, it's been available for several years. FSW has just recently starting selling it.

If you are planning on using it on your 09 though (just going by what you have listed), it will not work. For that vehicle, you need to use either the X3+ or TSX device.

ok well I'm not questioning your knowledge here but why does it say that the livewire is compatible with all ford focus's (including mine) on the fswerks website?

They have it wrong. It will work on 05-07 but not 08+.

The livewire will not work on the 08+ focus. Other 08+ vehicles, depending on the vehicle and year it will work on.
