Which scanner/ tuner do you suggest?

I'm was looking to get the AUTOENGINENUITY SCANNER. But then started considering a tuner/scanners such as Edge, Sct, Dptuner etc.....My need is diagnostics now, put a little tune might be nice at times. So I guess my question is are the tuner/ scanners as capable has the AE? If so, is one scanner more capable than the others? If equal scan ability is one a better choice than the others. Would like egt probe, will any or all support probe?

Thanks for your time and comments

AE will not support EGT. AE is strictly diagnostics and is probably more in depth than the tuner/re-programmers. I have AE and am very satisfied. If I want tunes I will probably contact some of the very excellent and knowledgeable tuners supporting this site.

If you need any info or help, feel free to contact me.

Our Infinity will do all you need. It will hold tunes, monitor PID's, read DTC's, run KOER/KOEO tests, give warning messages, and a whole lot more.

The Edge CTS and SCT Livewire do not have the same capabilities as the Infinity. As far as I know, they will not do KOER/KOEO tests.
