Scangauge or similar for 1993 e250?

I noticed on Scangauge's website that they don't have a product for pre-1996 vehicles. Is there anything similar that will work on my 1993 e250?

1993 is pre-OBD2, so finding something that provides as much info as a ScanGauge will be very difficult.

I've never found anything. I added a pillar guage pod and have trans temp there. I'm hoping to add a small tach there someday and one more thing to my third slot. It's not nearly as good or complete as a Scanguage, but better than nothing. You can get an OBD-I scanner from Ebay for around $20 if I recall correctly and it will check codes better than the count-the-light-blinks method.

IMO, the biggest disadvantage to a pre-96 vehicle of any make is the lack of OBD-II for code scanning.

Good luck!

Currently vanless. Weird.
