checking ICP pressure and duty cycle tool?

Does anyone know what the cheapest tool/scanner is to check the IPC pressure and IPC duty cycle? I bought the palmer performance software and its suspose to support ford diesels and well so far it dont do a lot of crap after spending over $200 and their customer support is vauge and slow..

Im just wanting to check my truck and see how everything looks. I'm at 100K and want to make sure my HPOP is still going strong.

Thanks for any info.

I use a ScanGauge II. They were around $125 shipped before Christmas but are $160 now.

ok so i have been messing with this software I already have and dont recommend, it doesn't do what they said so far and customer service isn't the greatest.. so anyway these are the pid's this software will display. I can finally see the ICP duty cycle but i can't figure out the hpop readings. can anyone figure out if there is something else on here im missing?

AutoEnginuity is about the best thing you can get. Besides a Ford IDS.

Yes, i have seen those. my problem is i have already spent $250 on this crappy software that dont work like they said.. so im not looking to spend anymore on something else right now. im just trying to get this crap to work.. im really thinking about callin my credit card company and complaining.. i talked to the company i bought the software from and they told me no refunds on software.. kinda a good gig, sell crap then say no refund when it dont do what u bought it for.. i kept all my emails with them. im just leanind hard about getting the terminator T-500 hpop and wanted to make sure i really needed it 1st, if not im was going to save a bit and get a 38r turbo.. money's tight these days.. lol

WOW, you've followed, and even been given here in this thread, some pretty bad advice

Palmer, ScanGauge, AeroForce, all not well suited for Real diagnosis... They are all basic, half/assed, pretenders to the AE (as jesilvas suggests) with more "glitz" than substance. They just use the "generic", easy, stuff. See, how it works is, Ford has all this proprietary code that the aftermarket people have to reverse engineer. It's a Huge, on going, job! Nobody does it better than AE for the money. Plain & simple.

And that's what makes the difference to you & I, the end-users, all that work deciphering the "secret" codes. If it's not done, we get a limited tool.

I know your priority is "Does anyone know what the cheapest tool/scanner" but sometimes you really do get what you pay for, and for $100 more than what you've already spent you could have 5X the tool. Palmer is really bad. Those guys don't know diesels, and you've been defrauded (use those words with your CC company) by them into believing their stuff is well suited. If you can return what you got from them and get your money back, pony-up the extra buck and get the Only tool you should have had in the first place.....

I agree with noralph
If you actually have proof that the company says that their product works well on diesels and it does not then you have a good case for a charge back.

Just so I understand correctly, my ScanGauge II does not display accurate ICP and IPR duty cycle data?

edit: The OP question was, "Does anyone know what the cheapest tool/scanner is to check the IPC pressure and IPC duty cycle?" His main concern appeared to be, "just wanting to check my truck and see how everything looks. I'm at 100K and want to make sure my HPOP is still going strong." I too wanted an inexpensive product to check various readings on my 2001 F-250 and thought the ScanGauge II would do it. Does the ScanGauge II display inaccurate ICP and IPR duty cycle data?
