scanmaster so ya can use it on the street without hittin a tree...nice an small
12 sec car is a no brainer...now if you are gonna race all the time an get in the 11.5s then I would go for the Turbo Link....I feel the direct scan gives waaaaay to much info unless your flyin low 11s an down
I started out with Turbolink with boost sensing hardware, and now I have added the Scanmaster 2 for everyday driving. The boost sensing option on the turbolink is something that i really like having, and wouldn't do without.
87 GN: 307FP hotwired, adj FPR, Tomka Cold air kit, Stock turbo, injectors and IC,MM 3"DP, Red's 93 street and Lubrant 110 race chips
Turbolink with boost sensing, Nitto DR's on stock rims
Best time: 12.51 @ 109.18 mph, 1.83 60' @ 20lbs boost
I have Direct Scan but only have a couple of passes saved. I used an OTC4000E for over a year. The OTC has the same scan rate at TurboLink (ALDL connection) but gave A-LOT less info than DS or TL. The OTC can also be used on almost any computer controlled vehicle BEFORE 1994
It works well on my N/A 87 Limited. For the price of an OTC, you can buy a SM and still have enough money left for either DS or TL.
Join the nearest Buick club in your area. See what the other members are using and make your decision then. The Scanmaster is what I would by first if I were going to purchase again.
