Well I bought the hardware and bought the software .

Thereís a kazillion bits of info forscan will give you....unfortunately....no egt1, egt2, egt3


it will tell you historical dpf stuff, but not when the next default regen will occur


a lot of the readings are in scientific terms....instead of psi for things like ebp, itís in bar time something else

its more informative than a code reader...but not a replacement for ids


I did find some accessory faults that do not show up on a code scanner so I need to hunt those down.

not too useful on a 6.4

the 6.7 folks are having a blast with it

I was going to tell you but...........

That's how I found my high idle was associated with no. 3 EGT sensor . When it gave up, my RPM's at idle were 950. After replacement it dropped back to 650. Alot more manageble in tight parking.
