    i was informed by the owner of hmotors and my local emmissions testing facility that if your running a jdm ecu they are not programmed to work with US tools so a US obd scanner will read "blank" as i was told. so this may be your problem if using a jdm ecu along with your motor.

    x2, jdm ecus cannot be read by us scanners. my buddies dad had a $1600 scanner that could read my jdm p30 through the obd2 port, it could also start and make the windows go up and down in a mercedes too though...
