ok are there any scanners under 200 bucks that scan for KR? Maybe possibly something that will do OBD I as well as II.

There are not any NEW scan tools that I am aware of for under $200 that display KR. Used, you might be able to find an Auto-X-Ray for under $200, but for it to display KR, it needs to have been upgraded with the enhanced GM parameters. It might do OBD I as well. Search their site to see what model might do OBD I and II and KR, and then keep your eye out for a gently used one.

the only downside is that you can't upload recorded scans to your PC.

You really get what you pay for... Bite the bullet and get one of the ones we mentioned...

define "live sensors"

Aren't O2 sensors and knock sensors "live"? According to scanguages'* "addAguage" capability, and this pdf, it can scan (in real time) KR, a/f ratio, tranny fluid temp, etc. And you can put them on the display as a guage, aswell, just like you can with the LS1M. I thought the PCM pulling timing via knock retard in real time would be considered "live" but maybe that'* just me.

here'* the pdf I referred-to above: http://www.scangauge.com/support/pdfs/XGAUGE.pdf
just scroll down to scroll down til you find GM, you'll see the enhanced perameters such as KR.
