    Default OBD II software

    Hi,
    Both of my kids drive 2000 Impreza RS. Boy's one is souped up.
    Thinking about getting a PC(notebook) based OBD II software.
    I already have ELM serial interface box.
    Any suggestions/recommendations of which is good one to purchase?
    TIA,
    Tony

    Tony, are you getting it to do programming to the car, or just to read
    any codes that pop up? If the latter, Autozone pulls the codes for
    free..... I'm not even sure what type of programming can be done to
    these cars....

    Hi,
    There is no auto zome where I live, way up here in Alberta.
    Have an older version of Digimoto but I noticed they changed their
    interface box to different chip base. So I was hoping to get something
    else. Not interested in programming, just as general maintenance tool.
    Anyone tried a Proscan package?

    Hi,
    Been a while. Boy finished school now. Working a consulting civil
    engineer. Trying to let him learn and take care of his own car now.
    So I can really retire into country side and hide, LOL.

    Hi,
    We bought them new. Red for girl, Blue for boy. Daughter's one is stock
    except Iridium plugs and better stereo in dash. Boy's has been mod'd
    quite a bit. Heavier clutch, 17" rims, both front and rear
    springs/adjustable struts, sway bars/link,
    strut tower braces, master cylinder brace, mod'd chip, header and
    exhaust, Iridium plugs, CAI, etc. Also stereo improvement with powered
    sub. Dyno test showed ~190 Hp. Handling is excellent. Both cars have
    been reliable but they both had rear wheel bearing going once(only one
    side) Was getting very noisy.

    I use PCMScan from Palmer Performance Engineering. It can use a variety of
    interfaces and has a scripting interface if you are ambitious enough to
    program your own PIDs. Works well for me and it costs $100 US.
