I have been really happy with Autoenginuity. Great tech support and awesome product. About $350 with Ford Enhanced Software.

Love my ScangaugeII with all its Gauges, Fuel Mileage indicator, and Scan Gauge.
In Addition I can benefit from over 59 Additional 6.0L XGauges that can easily be programed.

Mine paid for itself with the fuel savings and truck protection while towing.

Not bad for $160 sold by Auto Zone (Part No SG) and Camping World.

2005, 6.0L, 6 Spd Std, 3.73 Rear End, F250SD, Extended Cab, 4 x 4 Long Bed. 2008 extension mirrors. GPS/TV/DVD/CD/Rear Cam/Radio installed, Max Energy programer by Hypertech, and Fuel Pressure Gauge. ScanGaugeII for 60 plus XGauges, and MPG. ELC Cat EC-1 Coolant, Pull a 39ft 15500Lbs 5th Wheel Camper Trailer. Mileage Avg is 20MPG, and pulling 12.6MPG.

another vote for AE. the ability to run buzz/contribution tests, shut down individual injectors, comand the ipr dc, and monitor darn near anything on the truck is priceless.

I have access to an ids whenever i need to get really down and dirty. The issue mainly is monitoring when intermittent issues arise like the one i'm having now. I just ordered the scangauge2 from autozone. Gonna give it a shot and see i not ill return it
