    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.

    The OBDII Scan Tool
    do your own diagnostics and clear your trouble codes, which turns off the check engine light.

    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
