5 gas analyzer purchase Advice or recommendations ?
We are looking to replace our older Snap On analyzer and have some questions about which analyzer to purchase as a replacement. It will mainly be used on early 80's fuel injected and carburetted vehicles. The main complaint about our older Snap On unit is the lag time between adjustments and readings on the tool. The two we are currently looking at are the ANSED Autoplus 5 and the Snap On HHGA5CP. Any others we should conisder or advice on this purchase ? Thanks in advance.

We just got that snap on one a couple weeks ago. Using the supplied hose the lag time is 18-20 seconds.

Robert Schrader introduced to members of that other forum to the Bretschneider's formula that allowed one to calculate the lambda value of the exhaust gases. I don't have first hand experience with the unit, but close friends have stated that it's been a…

If lag time is the biggest concern check this out: emsgas.com/home/engine-tu… The lag time is 3-4 seconds, due to smaller diameter and shorter hoses. Also, not sure if you are into performance, this analyzer can integrate into the dyno. The dyno software adjusts the lag time, so gas data, TP%, intake pressure, and dyno data are aligned. One other feature is upgraded filtering, those older…
+1 for Bridge Analyzers. I rarely use ours anymore,but it has always been an accurate, trusted unit when I need it. It is a true hand held unit.
Wow! I had no idea Snap On had a true hand held analyzer for under 3800?!?!?! I wonder how accurate this model is?
I have a barely used one available if you're interested.
