AutoEnginuity scanner

Hey all, just curious if anyone has picked up ae scan tool w/wo the ford bundle for personal use or what ever. Is it worth the dollars? Between me my father in law and brothers we've got almost a fleet worth of strokes. Figured might be nice to have one of these sitting in my shop at home. Just want to see what anyone has to say about the capabilities of the scanner and it's tests and data?

Subscribed! I was looking at one of these too for me and my fathers rig. Hell of a lot cheaper then buying a Modis, and I belive it does just as much if not a little more too.

Guys, searching for AE on this forum will show 100s of positive reviews and interesting reads. Did you want us to do all the research and report back to you?

FWIW mine is invaluable for trouble shooting. Trickiest part is locating a laptop.

Only when 2 mins before someone asked the same question lol from what i see this is a great tool for powerstrokes, does everything the ford wds can do for WAY WAY cheaper, you can pick up a used laptop like what im using now for 75 bucks! I plan on getting the software soon

From what I have read way better money spent then on a the Snap-On Moddis that you were looking at. The moddis I use is around 5 grand and then you have to update it (well suppose to update it) every year or so and thats about 1200. From what I read the AE has free updates or if they do cost it isnt more then a hundred bucks.
