autoenginuity vs what i got

i own and operate a small auto repair facility in alabama. i am looking at purchasing autoenginuity with the ford powerstroke download. i currently own a matco/otc determinator.i also subscibe to alldata. i was wanting someone with experience to chime in to give me some insight on this. what will the a/e do that the matco won't. i am starting to get alot of powerstroke work in my shop. i started out just working on my personal 7.3 vehicles word got out that i will work on /repair the vehicles and now i do alot of work on them. so far its 7.3s and 6.0s. just completed my first 6.0 head gasket job this week. i have 4 6.0 egr jobs lined up from same customer. 1 7.3 engine rebuild in process with one in line. again it is a small shop that is opereted by myself and one other guy and owned by myself(my checking account). if it will benefit me in diagnosis and repair i'm all about purchasing it. i just dont want to buy it and it do the same thing as what i have. i service and do all the repairs on several psds locally and have a feeling that the psd work is going to pick up fast.

Prolly not much help, but:

I have no idea what your reader is capable of.

BUT: AE can do pretty much anything the Ford scanners can do, can run diagnostic tests read all the sensors/systems availible. Love it so far, just wish I had someone local who could teach me how to use it better!

I'm going to follow this thread. I'm handy with a wrench but new to diesels. I'll spend the dollars I need to so that I don't have to have my truck towed to a shop should she leave me stranded. I can tell you what's wrong with any of my 5.0 based vehicles just by hearing the way it died or is running. But I'm blind with my PSD and getting a fast education by following this Site!! But a couple of thousand dollar tool will buy a lot of towing! I too am eying the Auto Engenuity but this would be strictly for personal use. If there is a more cost effective way to do this I'm all over it!
