Any use a Scangauge II?

Just got a 2003 F350 last week, and a friend of mine was asking if I wanted to buy a new Scangauge II from him for $100. Does anyone have any experience using it in your PSD? It won't interfere with my tunes when I get my SCT X3 will it?

Thansk in advance for any comments.

I have one. It reads alot of things, and checks/clears DTC's. Pretty much everything that has a sensor it will read. I bought mine from Terminator engineering. Mine can run Cyliner Contributuion and buzz tests as well. It wont interfere with your SCT. IT does plug into your port but when your loading tunes just unhook it.

there are two totally different products with similar names...

there is the Aeroforce Scangauge..I think scheid has this type..

There is also the ScanGauge II by Linear Logic...I have one of these to watch coolant temp, intake air temp, and a couple of other things...it will pull and clear most codes...won't do a buzz test...see if it has the X gauge option...mine is a little older and i need to send it in for an update...it doesn't conflict with tuning at all...$100 may be a little steep since you can pick up the latest and greatest for $150..that's up to you..

Do you think that the Scangauges work well enough to monitor the SCT performance tunes?

You can set them up to monitor EGT's and Boost, probably costs quite abit to get all the parts you need to do that though, those are the 2 things that require extra parts to monitor. I still have a full 3 pillar cluster plus my scanguage. I myself would still prefer to have my mechanical guages over the Scanguage. I think of my Scanguage as more of a bonus thing. As far as trusting it to monitor everything, I have no idea??? Im sure it would be fine. You can get a nice set(3) of regular guages for the price of a Scanguage, thats something to think about too. With the diagnostic tools on the Scanguage they come it at about $270, plus something to mount it in if you choose.

I think I am going to spend my money on getting a set of 3 mechanical gauges first, then get a Scangauge as a secondary monitor for other readings and scanning.

i know a ScanGuageII is not enough..it won't do pyro and the MAP(boost) doesn't read in psi.. the newest is supposed to have tranny temp...i think the Aeroforce can read tranny temps too..you might want to ask them about that as it would save you some money on the mech gauge and you can get a fuel pressure gauge instead..
