The smarty jr is supposed to NOT need gauges, anything above that in the smarty line is recommended. I would get gauges either way just for your safety and satisfaction. If you have a auto I would personally go with a fuel (rail pressure) a egt for exhaust monitoring a trans temp and or boost for tubo psi. You could also go with a EDGE monitor only which would have all of the above on a electronic display its your preference. Hope this helps you in your decisions im sure some of the other guys will chime in also.

EFI Live is the best way to go for an 06 and up. Much more refined than a smarty.

What makes the efi live so much better than a smarty anarchydiesel? I am also in the market for a tuner and am wanting to go with the best possibility.

Even if the level of tuning was the same, EFI Live is a better option due to the scan tool and data logging capabilities that come with both the V2 and the autocal. You can literally monitor any sensor on the truck and see how it is performing and if there is a possible problem. The thing to remember about EFI Live is that the tunes are only as good as the person writing them. If you purchase from a reputable tuner the truck should run much smoother and cleaner than with a smarty, not to mention more power. With the smarty you have a few choices on how to set timing and rail pressure, but you still do not know what you are really adjusting. With EFI duration, timing, rail pressure, etc. are infinitely adjustable allowing the truck to be dialed in to your exact driving style and mods (or lack of).

The smarty does what it says, but an autocal from a reputable tuner can be had for less than a smarty. In the end it is all personal preference and up to the OP.

Im a first time smarty owner, and thus far I couldn't be happier. Wish the EFI was available for my 03, I've heard nothing but good things and would like to try it, but for now the smarty S-06 is gettin it done and I would suggest it to anyone on the market for a tuner for CR trucks.
