Will ultraGauge work on 1995 Tercel???

Hey everyone, just bought a 1995 Toyota tercel 1.5liter 4-speed manual. Will an Ultra-gauge or a scan tool hook up and work properly on my 1995 tercel.
The tercel is OBD2 but it is not OBD2 compliant????
Help please?

No gaurentee, but I'm pretty sure it will work. I'm not aware of any major changes between 95 and 96 Tercels.

It's listed on the Scangauge compatibility page. Seeing as they're both pulling from the OBD-II port, I'd guess the UG will work as well.

Thanks guys I didn't want to spend the cash then not be able to use it.

Any recommendation on which I should buy: The ultra-gauge or the scan gauge. Thanks again

I only have experience with the Scangauge so I can't compare. I have it because I bought before the Ultragauge existed.

It is really just preference. It's been discussed on this forum many times. Both are accurate, both give you access to the same information. The ultragauge looks nicer and is much cheaper.

That being said, I bought the Scangauge for a few reasons. First, I like the small profile. I knew exactly where I wanted to mount it, and the Ultragauge would have blocked some of the view of my gauges. Also, the Scangauge II has 2 ports for the OBD connection. One of the back, and one on the side. This is useful if you want to make your install clean and with no wires showing, as I did. Also, you can daisy chain scangauges if you want to. Finally, the Scangauge has a feature called x gauge that allows you to program extra gauges for vehicle specific information. This is useful to hybrid owners, or people like me with a lean burn civic. I have a custom gauge that shows me if I am in lean burn or not.

I have both scangauge and ultra gauge. As far as lean burn goes, you can use the ultragauge also, just select o2 sensor 2 and when it registers .01-.09 on the gauge it's in lean burn.
