Thinking about purchasing a ScanGuage II($135.00) and was wondering if anyone has experience with it will reading FICM voltage. ScanGuage says if it comes out of the port it will read it.
Hmmm.... I haven't found the FICM readings on mine. I'll have to see what I can find on Wednesday. (my day off)
For the price you are getting it for is a steal. I paid $169 for mine earlier this summer.
Any techs out there read the FICM at work through the port?
Yes, it reads FICM voltage. Both voltage in and voltage out (that's what we wanna see, 48v.) If you buy it from BulletProofDiesel, it comes pre-programmed with the X-gauges, FICM voltage included.

I just had a nice drive of 165 miles today, and everything looked fantastic! I used the Torque APP going over yesterday, Scangauge II coming home.
Although, going over my MPG was 13.5 actual. And the little above head gauge said 13.7. Returning today, my over head reads 16.7 and I didn't drive far enough to worry about going and fueling again. One can hope!
As you can see, there have been many more added.
KO=KEY ON LI=LOW IDLE HI=HIGH IDLE OR=OPERATING RANGE

Here is another BAR if the above one is not working for you. The one below works for me.
Barometric Pressure (PSI)

Fan Speed Sensor Duty Cycle (%)
Manifold Absolute Pressure (PSI) (BOOST)
MAP is a standard gauge - but this XGauge is actually better than the standard one. It has a larger range which was needed because the standard gauge tops out around 37 psi absolute (about 22 lbs of boost), which diesels have no problem doing. This one should read well beyond 22lbs of boost.
With a little tweaking you can adjust this to read boost as you said.
To do this, just plug in the MAP code - get a reading from it with the key in the on position but the engine off, then based on the reading changed the last 4 digits of the MTH to whatever corresponds to your reading on this table
14.0 -- FF74
14.1 -- FF73
14.2 -- FF72
14.3 -- FF71
14.4 -- FF70
14.5 -- FF6F
14.6 -- FF6E
14.7 -- FF6D
14.8 -- FF6C
14.9 -- FF6B
15.0 -- FF6A
So, for example if you got a reading of 14.5 PSI with key on engine off you'd change the MTH to 01220320FF6F and the reading should read 0.0 with key on engine off and would then show how many lbs of boost you were at when the vehicle is running.
