The last release of ScanXL (3.5.1) is already 4 years old. Even the latest news on the website is almost two years old. Does Palmer Performance Engineering still exist?

It's a pity. I like using ScanXL. It's a great piece of software, but after all those years I would like to see something new. Would that be possible?

Yeah, I've noticed this for a while now. I've got people telling me they never heard of PPE. I even have tuners asking what PPE is. Very rarely someone will chime in and make a comment from the PPE staff. But as you mentioned, the latest updates are for individual platforms dated 8/15. As for software being out dated......I downloaded Vs 3.5.1 10/27/12....and there has not been an update since.
 I'm trying to work with a tuner currently with software from PPE that's 4 years old and they are working with software dated last month! It's getting hard to match a tuners logging software compared to one I purchased 4 or more years ago. As I mentioned in one of my other posts, I think its time to move on to something else as PPE does not update there software like many others do.....

So with Autometer buying them out (working with them) they don't have to support us anymore? It looks as if this agreement was over a year ago and very rarely anyone pops in here.
 Thanks for making that post NatWill

You bet. I am a master technician by GM and Ford background. Very sad to see such a promising platform go down the tubes like this. Maybe something will change, probably not though.

Agreed,
 I've actually had a few Chrysler tech's use this software as it does more than most scant tools do for a fraction of the cost. Then all of a sudden no more support  Roll Eyes

Hi, I just joined ... and noticed the sad dilemma of the product being sold to Auto Meter.  I guess I'm just late to the party.  I'm trying to learn and decipher the PCMSCAN output information.  This output is from a 2007 Pontiac Wave  with P0171,P0172 codes.  I exported the info to Excel but am not able to pinpoint the problem.  Would anyone like a go at it?
Thank you for your time and efforts.

I looked this over. I see a voltage drop out on 4 or 5 occasions. Test the battery and Alternator for stable voltage. (14.5V is standard. No less than 13.5) Load test it at AutoZone or equivalent in the parking lot. 85 amps is usually normal. Then look for vacuum leaks with a smoker machine (or a cigar blown into a vacuum line) for vacuum leaks. Also verify the EGR system is not hanging open or malfunctioning. Intake leaks or (un-metered air) messes up the fuel trim - short and long term values. Low volatage or a bad alternator can also wreak havoc with the ECM.

Good Luck!
