An X-Cal 2 will do that. You just won't be able to upload your tunes into their car.

do you have an X-Cal or a X-Cal 2.....completely different animals there.....As long as there's an OBD2 port you should be able to use an X-Cal2, you might have to get different connectors.......

There's a BIG DIFFERENCE between an X-Cal and a X-Cal2, did you specify either....no.

I would imagine that you could because SCT X-Cal2's are made for Ford and GM's and i'd imagine some others as well.

NOW,
I know Snap-On has some Scan tools, but i'm not a 100% that they datalog to a laptop or datalog period. That's the best i can think of right now

I have the X cal 2 and while I can read any ford CEL I can't get Honda's, Dodge, and many others.


Now autozone offers the readers that you can buy but no data logging software, infact I have never heard of a universal datalogger.


Also I agree with the above, lose the attitude. We try to help but with minimal info on the subject the only pperson that you should be pissed at is yourself for thinking we all know EXACTLY what you have and want out of this subject.

If you wan't to pay some big money, you can get universal data loggers and code readers. My buddy has one at his shop. It's awesome, reads all parameters of the engine, all vitals, codes and all. But, I believe it was very expensive. Like Focusin said though, you can get lower models at auto-zone advanced but I don't think they datalog, just scan.

I don't think Chris was trying to get an attitude here, it's the way he types.
Right Chris?
And he gets fustrated easily too................
