ThreadVCM2 Ford Diagnostic Clone Model: SP177C SP177C1 – Where to buy?


Does anyone own a SP177-C or SP177-C1 VCM2 clone? I read online that those are the best.

Where should I buy it?

I asked a few sellers on AliExpress about that version and they seem to not know about it.

I found it on obd2express site. Did anyone buy from them? Are they serious?

I’d really appreciate if someone bought a good clone to let me know where should I buy from.

VCM II SP177-C vs SP177-C1:

SP177-C is same as SP177-C1. 

C1 have usb sticker for wifi.

That is, only usb wifi is not included in SP177-C.

It’s only difference.

Review 1:

I have bought this : http://www.obd2express.co.uk/wholesale/f…-card.html and they sent what was advertised. I have done module programming on 10+ cars (both PWM and CANbus) and every time without any issues. And I will do programming 100% as original

Review 4:

Hmmm in fact 99%
My sp177c1 failed an 08 escape PCM the other day.
That’s the only problem i had so far


Review 5:

Here is a SP177 version with wifi , I have bought the same without wifi 1 month ago and it can do programming and everything a genuine VCM2 can link: http://www.obd2express.co.uk/wholesale/b…rsion.html

inner board same as http://blog.obdexpress.co.uk/2018/01/24/vcm-ii-sp177-pcb/


Review 6:

VMware and date freeze, is the way I believe everyone has to go.
unless you stick with Ver.86 and a good patch and a SP177-C, clone.
I have a new ver 100. I haven’t opened the package yet but I assume it will be the same. If not I will up load it.

I’ve had some good luck with the SP39 board, the board looks pretty scary but it hasn’t given me any trouble “YET”.

Hi, sorry no pics yet but after getting it to connect first by usb then setting up the wireless connection it seems to be working great, I am using it with usb cable, ids 86 with calibration files and extended programming running win7 64bit, did a few small jobs like headlight recalibration and clearing some error codes which I tried removing a couple of other tools which wouldn’t clear them and it worked great, when you install v86 ids don’t forget to install as administrator, install ids, reboot, run patch, reboot, install calibration files, reboot then install the extended programming and reboot, keep the extended programming tool handy cos you will need it again, if you need any help just ask, good luck hope you get a good quality one

Sp177-C or Sp177-C1. Are supposed to be the most reliable clones.


Review 10:


SP177-C1 is the best, then SP177 I think

A good price. Well worth the money.


Review 11:

obdexpress seem to be the place to buy a decent clone their boards seem to be the good quality ones described on mhhauto,


I do use China clone with Mazda IDS and never had issue on 2010+ vehicle. Clone # sp177C-1 is working good also on 2010+ but this model isn’t available anymore.

As for sp177c , I have no experience with it. just make sure you don’t buy anything that’s based on allscanner/VXdiag technology. Those are complete crap


But don’t expect any clone VCM2 will do old PCM programming, because of the EEprom programming signal higher voltage required can’t be produced by those clones.

In short, when programming these PCM, the VCM sends a higher voltage (around 18v) to 1 pin of the PCM to “open” the programming session. Clones can’t do that.

the only tool that I know that does it is the new thing from FLY but….(and there’s a BIG but)… it won’t let you program some older cluster and ABS ecu. Ive tested it on some cars and so far, not so good.


Review 12:

I thought the one/s to get were the SP177-C1 and SP177-C. Blue input connector. I have a SP177-1. It worked once or twice, then nadda. Piece of shit


Review 13:

SP177-C1 and C are the ones to get
