RE: Scanner for 7.3

Does any one know what the best scanner for an 05 7.3 would be?

Ive been looking at the AutoEnginuity® - OBD2 Scan Tool - Professional PC and PDA Diagnostics

But that only scans the 03's and up.

Please advise if anyone know

Thanks

It says 1996 or newer

i wouldnt use anything other than a genesys evo, i absolutely love them. although they are very expensive. they can also scan just about everything, and do buzz and contribution test and whatnot.

AE will work on a 95, you just have to change some of the settings in the software.

Snap On Solus doesn't have alot of things you dont need like scope and a computer desktop but will show and do everything on anything but European car( unless you buy the kit) every car connector you can think of. You said open budget but i think $4K might be toooo much. lol
