I hear it brings better results than Tetenal E6 kit plus the positives last longer, but I guess there's a lot more "art" needed doing the longer process which I guess is harder with a normal (non-motorized-rotary/non-lifted/non-temp-stabilized) tank.

I maybe got around +/-1C deg precision using a simple temperature stabilized tub, which is slightly over the recommended 0.6C deg precision recommended by Fuji for the colour developer, so not sure how much it'll affect the colour results. Also would it be worth aquiring some pH meter for better and more consistent results? The rest of the baths don't seem to be so sensitive for the temperature and pH.

Anyone tried the new Fuji's 6X kit in "home-brewed" E6 developing? Any tips or tricks?

Or should I stick to 3-bath kit (Tetenal) and be satisfyed with inferior results and shorter archival times?

Probably not what you wan to hear: CONSISTENCY : mixing chemistry to correct specific gravity, control strips and densitometry - just to set the run up. Otherwise, accept the process is unique to you and of undetermined quality. It's a lot of effort to do E6 really well (ie in control) which is why I send out to a good lab.
