    The really cheap ones don't work well with Forscan, but I haven't heard of one damaging a car.

    As Joe mentioned there are some limits, but I have been using a version of that for several years, plugged in 24/7 and have had no issues.

    BUT be aware that not all clones of ELM327 chipsets are created equally.

    You guys are awesome. TY. I bought the one for $10 on Amazon. Will let you guys know if it's good.

    joegr, I'm looking to tune the LS. Gonna get an excal 3.

    My previous 02' LS was using one of Rob's tunes courtousy of SPSully for arranging the exchange.
    But I don't know who to go to for the 04' LS. Do you have a contact?

    I've heard of Torrie Tunes but no idea who has the best Tune or who to contact.

    Got the ELM327. Works well. Able to read the code and pull up the DTC. For $10, that seems pretty good.
