    Default Diagnostics Program for Laptops

    Where would I go for a program for my laptop to run codes and check or change computer settings on my Blazer and Sububan and what kind of cable to use ? The machanics where I work use thier laptops to change the top speed the trucks run and to check fuel mileage , idle time and many other specs. on the Peterbuilts we run .

    One of the best laptop scanners is the EASE System. This scanner will scan most all vehicles except for a few European models. It even has a pass through device for re-flashing your computer. The re-flash software is extra of course. It also has a wireless DLC connector so you can scan your vehicle while you are sitting at your kitchen table.

    I have never used the Spectrum tuner before, but I did see the guys from Jet Performance at last years Summit Racing Chevy show and it was very impressive. I would say that gmagilla would be in a good position to use one of these, no one knows engine tuning better than a Diesel mechanic. If that was my situation I would take full advantage of that situation, those guys could definately help you out in that area!

    Thanks Dwill for the compliment, I try my best!.............AMY
