Yes, all the same features as the X3, but adds a larger display, digital guages, 0-60MPH and 1/4 mile readings.

is there one I can tune myself?

I work at a shop with a chassis dyno and tune cars for them anyways.
We are not an SCT dealer though . . .

You can get the "Pro-Racer" package with any device to allow you to modify any setting on the program.

LiveWire does all the above and adds a larger screen, 0-60/1/4 mile timing and estimated HP/TQ readoutw with 6 digital gauges. (as posted directly below his original post)
