    Personally I prefer the BDX for it's cloud functionality, but if you want a good gauge interface go with the Livewire.

    Did they ever fix all the issues with the BDX on the SHO platform?

    William Proctor had one and it didn’t support all the PIDS for his SHO... or the PIDS were reading incorrectly...

    There were several other SHO owners with the same problem..

    Sounds like Bully Dog fixed it though.

    I went with the GTX. SCT doesn't officially list compatibility with the SHO but Brad (AJP Turbo) confirmed it works which is why I purchased it.

    Live data works and no issues with logging. The only noticeable difference is that it takes a few extra minutes to flash a tune.

    That was the GTX he had issues with, but the BDX had issues with spoofed strategies. Wouldn't let you retune after you tuned with a spoofed strategy tune. It has been fixed since last year sometime. Me and Matt had fun with that after locking my tune in with 93 then me filling with e30 for a moment and not being able to reflash lmao.

    Ah that’s right... but I still seem to remember the BDX not being recommended.

    Either way... I have had several SCTx4’s and a livewire plus a couple different LMS devices...

    The X4 and Livewire work great... no issues with either.

    I haven't tried any others, but I really like my livewire.

    it's hit and miss on strategy support. We still steer away from them, we've sold maybe 10 since release, 6 worked for the customer car 4 we had to swap out for a Livewire.
