It's not really either. My 2005 Mk6 is ment to be OBDII compliant yet non of the OBDII software that Rover tried would read it.

What are you trying to do? Get a cheap tool for reading codes?

The Transit is definately a strange one, it seems cheap equipment just wont read em :? Yet I have sorted a KA and a Focus this weekend using the same software :?

I am looking for kit that can remap the ECU aim at improve the initial REV torque and fuel economy. I know it is a dangerous task anyway.

I guess it wont, especially as it only lists one Ford.

for this stuff you're best getting a proffesional remap - don't buy hit and miss stuff off e-bay or it will almost certainly end in tears
