The only ones they make are obd2, and the unit number should be ELM327, mine's manufacturer is BAFX. I got mine from Amazon, it was the one with like 200 reviews. Are you using Torque?

Right on man, so far its one of my favorite car related purchases. I was one of the fortunate people that got the dash without the tach... in a manual transmission. I put Torque on my phone and now I use my phone as a dash mounted tach! Brilliant!

Hello!

Did your ELM327 work on your focus? I bought one similar for my euro focus and it didn't work!

It did work on mine, actually... are you using an Android or Apple phone? If you're using an Android phone, check out the app Torque
