Just a couple questions about my Quad S2. First one, can I use it as an OBDII scan tool on any vehicle? And is the 110 HP tune safe to use on a stock tranny? I have it on 70 now with no problems.

What do you mean scan? It will read most of the common DTCs, and you can watch real time balance rates, rail pressure etc... I have had problems with the live scan freezing up on mine a couple of times

You will not know what the safe limits are on yours until you exceed them... Most will tell you 90

I meant using it on like my girlfriends 1996 grand am to read DTC's. I didn't know if it would work for that on anything but my truck. And its a daily driver so the 90 would probably be more than enough.

I'm gonna go out on a limp here and say no.

It may or may not hurt the vehicle/tuner to try.... Just call them up and ask

the 110 and 135 tune are a little agressive for a stock tranny! i ran the 135 tune for a few months but did not lean on it at all in the higher gears. you will limp it in a heart beat if you do.

Alright I'll probably just stick to the 70 or 90 for now. I can drive as hard as I want on 70 now with no problems.

Cool thanks for the info. Also have a side question; any of these tunes safe for towing, or do I just need to experiment and watch the EGT's?

Tow tune might be but would just give her a try and keep it under 1200.

As far as a "Code Reader"... Man I would go to your nearest auto parts store and pick one up... $60.00 - $100.00, and you will use it more than you think..

My whole family and friends are alway asking to borrow it.. it works for all kinds of makes, models, and years..

Hey, you could charge a small fee and get your money back for the purchase !! :)
