Innova 3160e or Actron CP9690. The Innova is quite a bit more money, but is supposed to be fully compatible with more vehicles, though unlike the Actron it requires another purchase for the OBD-I cables.

Neither one has the capability to force a crankshaft position relearn, my '00 Silverado proved how handy that can be (paid $10 to a local shop for them to fix it with their Autel MaxiSYS MS906).

Other choice is to buy the mongoose cable MDI and then download GMs Tech2Win software. You have to pay GM $50 each 3 days you use it but can do anything a dealer can do.

I bought my Actron off of Craigslist from some person 500 miles away at a big discount. Make sure you get one with graphics capabilities. It helps a lot with the graphics to see what is going on with coolant tmps progressing or O2 sensor switching.

There is a website which searches Craigslist offerings for the whole country. You will have to look for it because my link is saved at home on a different computer.
