Mine was around $140 for both the tool and the cartridge.

It will record a small window of data, but you can't print it or retrieve it from the unit. It does allow you to view the oxygen sensor and knock retard data while driving down the road.

Went to carquest to see if they had anything. They thought i was insane. They said that the only thing they know of that can do that is called something like OTC or something like that and costs $2600. That is stupid...I'm not gonna spend $2600 on something for a car that only cost $1800. I told him you guys were saying I could get one for under $200 and he told me I was dreaming. He said anything that does something like that costs a lot of money. Then I explained to him that I had a scantool for OBD II that can scan and record any of the 5000+ OBDII codes and it was only $300...he told me I didn't know what I was talking about...so I told him he didn't know what he was talking about and left. He tried to sell me one of those $30 code readers too.

Went to Autozone, all they had was the cartridge. They said that the 24 hour autozone about 10 miles down the road has the actual actron scantool, but he said it was in the $200 range...that plus the $50 cartridge is a little much. I was gonna go down to the other autozone and see if they actually did have the scantool, but I didn't have the cash to buy it so I didn't waste the gas.

Is there anyone that can get me a scantool that does what I want for like $100ish. Maybe some of you can buy it cheaper or something. I don't really want to spend $200+ on something that i'm gonna use once or twice.
