    Just saw it for sale on the JC Whitney website while searching for diagnostic tools. How well do you like it? Is there anything better on the market in the same price range?

    JC Whitney has it listed for $159.99, but I received an email that says they currently has 15% off any purchases over $125, and 20% off for any purchases over $200. Guess if I buy that & another $40.01 in tools, the price drops to $128. Is there a better deal out there?

    Update:
    Crap, just read the email and they don't offer the discount on Scan Gauge products. Guess I'll have to pass this time.

    I think with the speed sensors you don't have to worry about correcting the speed with a gear swap. It's only if you swap wheels and tires, or so I have been told. Somebody please let me know if I am wrong.

    On topic, I have an SGII and really like it. I like the fact that the gas gauge is also a lot more accurate too. The only thing I wish we had was an oil pressure sensor, stock

    Does that plug into the OBD II port too? If so, it's a bargain. Someone posted some adaptable gauges that required installing a bunch of additional sensors (you had to purchase seperately) making it much more difficult & costly than installing a SG II.

    I have an OBD PLX gauge and it's no where as smooth as my scanguage. A few weekends ago it even helped me clear a code which the stupid PLX OBD would not read let alone clear.

    I like my scangauge!

    By the way on a side note, PLX customer service sucks imo. I've mailed them with the problem and never heard back.
