Code reader question

Hope I am in the right thread for this.

I am looking at getting a good reader, one that reads codes w/ description. I was thinking of the Innova 3040C. Found it on Amazon for $87.

Any thoughts of suggestions of good ones?

I purchased the DIGITAL CAN OBD2 Scan Tool, I think from AMAZON, it works very well and shows the overall condition of the vehicle as soon as it is plugged into the OBD2 Port. Later I purchased a SuperChips Cortex 3950 Tuner, I discovered it reads codes as well. If I had know this, I would have waited and bought the tuner instead of the code reader.

I agree with Super Bee. If you are going with the basic 3 then buy a SuperChjps (maybe used). If you are going to mod to the point you need a custom tune then a Diablo for CMR tuning.

I don't plan to do any custom mods or anything crazy, unless I hit the Powerball. I just need something so I don't have to rely on the auto parts store and their witty banter.
