i got a dilema wth these 2. firstly i want to buy some software which will give me all sorts of options for obd1 and obd2 cars i was told elm 327 was the best to use. but th other dilema is owning a early diesel (pre 2004) i need f-super for the codes but apparently it wont do much at all in the way of displaing data for mine except code reading. so does anyone know if f-super will work with other software? its intended use is for fords only more than likely.

I didn't think an ELM327 would work on your TDDI? My old ELM320 wont work on my sisters 2002 TDCI. But does on my 2004 car.

F-Super works on both though. Does the F-Super not give the same live data as on TDCI cars?

Fuel pressure, Throttle position etc?

Adding your location may find someone local who could offer assistance.

F-Super, Bluetooth OBDII (ELM) and a MS509 scanners (test subjects required).
