For just a reader/scanner check ebay. They are way cheaper then buying them at the parts store.

Another option is to just buy a obd1 pc cable. If you have a laptop, you can read codes, clear codes, program/tune, etc.... You can find free scanning programs online, but tuning SW generally has a price (for the good ones).

I've got this cable: http://www.aldlcable.com/sc/details.asp?item=aldlobd1u

Works great with the provided free software (Freescan: http://www.andywhittaker.com/ECU/Fre...0/Default.aspx )

Be careful - the really cheap ones are a paper clip in a plastic case. Get one that actually reads codes - not just turn your fans on. Before the crash, there were some threads on the good ones - they really do exist.

I really appreciate all of the replies, but can someone give me a manufacturer and model number that will work with the 94-95 LT1's?
Thanks

This is a good one from a respected known company. Goes for about $150. A Google search for OBD1 scanners will provide more results.
