I have sent Mastach a message (Thursday) asking him about this, but I have not gotten a reply back yet. I will post it if I do.

Roadrunner1, since you have a '94 Bonneville, I would advise you not to try Mastach'* kit, certainly not at this time. You would probably have to evaluate additional software, and also have to pick up the appropriate J1962 male plug (not included that I can see) that has to be adapted to Mastach'* kit.

For those '94-'95 owners with a laptop, a serial port, and a high threshold of pain, if you try it, let us know how you do. I'm always interested in this topic.

Default Actron Scanner 9145L kit`

I bought one of the Actron units off ebay last week
9145L. It works on my 94 and I hooked it up on the 2004 Ranger and it pulled live data off it as well
I am happy for now. At least with the live data I can tell if something is a miss on motor #3

I would be interested in the software and cable solution if someone goes down that path as well as I have a laptop. Did not go down that road initially as did not find out about it until after I made the purchase.
I was told that Freescan should work by a friend but I don't have the interface cable.
He uses it on an ODB1 custom burn on a 3.4 motor in a Custom show car a J-Body car
Cavalier...
Thanks everyone for all the info
This is a great forum

Please Note: FreeScan is not OBD-II compliant. It will only work on the vehicles listed below.
Which means it automatically will NOT work on 94/95 Bonnevilles, and earlier Bonnevilles are also not listed.

Nor do I see any hardware (cable) specifications shown. Lots of dead links on his pages too.

Thanks Will
One of the reasons I went with the purchase of the Actron 9145 was I knew it would work

You'll find some parameters missing.

Betcha you can't view KR (knock retard°) or KS counter (knock counts).

The 9110 with the 9115 cable for 94/95 will, but the 9145 will not. There'* other data lacking also.

Actually it does show the knock Count and it incremented up a couple of numbers on a 40 minute drive home. Primarily form the cold start turn out of the parking lot it clocked 8 KS
The Knock Retard shows up in the list but cannot remember if it changed
I think I know why the KS counts Front side manifold is leaking a bit since the motor swap.
