Ford F-series Super Duty Scanner Recommendation

by Alex Carter Mechanic Assistant
What equipment is needed to scan the Ford super duty engine? What other data is retrievable with compatible equipment?
What equipment would you all recommend, how much does it cost, and where do I get it?

Here obdii365.com provides some cheap automotive code reader/scanner for F-series super duty. Thanks to all contributors (especially from powerstroke.org forum). For sharing purpose only. You are at your risk.

Auto Enginuity
Auto Enginuity really is an awesome tool. It will do almost anything the dealer can except reflash the ECM and will also work on the Ford super duty.
Advantages:
  • Bi-directional support. You have the ability to initiate system and component tests
  • Mode 6 & Mode 9 support. Full ECM information including CAL, CVN, and VIN reporting
  • Multi system available: WinXP, Win7, Win8, Win10
Having AE and using it for preventative maintenance as well as troubleshooting can prevent the hurt to begin with.
The AE will allow me to monitor things in real-world conditions, change tire size configuration, has a section for PATS, buzz test, cylinder contribution, datalog, and it will watch ICP , DC%, PW, glow plug test and so many other functions. Problems frequently show up then, not in the sterile environment of the service bay.
You can record baseline performance before repair/mod. This will tell you what repair or mod takes priority and helps you to plan your expenditures.
You can record performance after mod. This is a good way to get hard data as to how effective a repair/mod is – eliminating illusions of money well spent or confirming a good repair/mod with measurable results.
If you have a independent garage you would go with AE to begin enjoying profits much faster!
Some people think the IDS is a better way to go! All we do is Ford diesels so its used regular plus having the bonus of updating the pcm,tcm,ficm, abs,relative compression, power balance and taking command of pids. But the original VCM2 takes hundreds of dollars without subscription. The vcm2 clone is cheap enough, but never able to hook up on a super duty.


Foxwell NT530/NT520/NT510  
Foxwell NT530/NT520 comes with one free car brand software.  The FOXWELL Ford F250 universal diagnostic code reader also help catch intermittent problems and confirm repairs during a drive cycle. Help you go through the annual emissions test easily.
