I was thinking about getting me a OBD-1 scanner. Is this the correct one for series I motors? How much is it?

for about 300
brand is AUTO X-RAY
OBD-1 is 93 n older
OBD-2 is 94 n up

Actually, you'll need a different cable for the 94 and up. Depends on what you want it for. If you want it just for your current car, a 12-pin OBD1 reader like my Actron will save you a bit of money. You can pick them up for about 100 bucks with the GM cartridge.

On the topic of scanners....
Can anyone recommend a good scanner/reader that would work on my 91 & my 97?

I know the pin outs and such are completely different, but I was wondering if that could be fixed by just buying an attachment, or if you had to buy two different scanners?

Auto X-Ray.... I've never seen that brand around. Have you ever used them before Joe?
So OBD-1 is what my 91 is... and OBD-2 is my 97..... gotcha... wasn't sure.

Thanks
