Auto enginuity or Snap on

For you guys running performance shops what are you using for scan tools? I have EFI already but looking for something to do cut out tests balance rates etc.

I have read quite a bit of you saying the auto enginuity is the way to go.

This will be used on strictly the big three diesels.

I know AE is cheaper than snap on but is it as fast and as easy to navigate perform functions?

I don't have a shop and only use it on personal vehicles, but I find AE very easy to navigate and use. Dennis at Strictly Diesel knows a lot about AE

I personally have a Solus Pro and like it, but the updates cost a fortune.
