Q. - I am interested as well. Just to make sure but does this work with 3800 swaps?
A. - It will work with OBD1 systems with the 12 pin connectors that have the data on pins E & M.
OBD 1 was used from about 85 to 95. Not all GM OBD1 vehicles with 12 pin connectors have the data on pins E & M. Some 94 & 95 OBD1 vehicles use a 16 pin connector. This cable will not work with 12 pin connectors that have the data on a pin that isn't E or M. This cable will not plug into the 16 pin connector.
Finally this cable will not work with OBD2 systems. So that means it will not work with anything 96 and newer.
Now specifically -
It will work with all Fiero V6 ECMs It will work with 84-86 Fiero Duke ECMs It will NOW work with 87-88 Duke ECMs It will work with the 1227730 ECMs It will work on 3400 TDC ECMs up till 95 (if the connector fits) It will work on the 92 - 95 Cadillac 4.9 ECMs It will work on 3800 Series 1 ECMs up to 95 (if the connector fits)
-- It will not work on any Series 2 or 3 3800s because they are OBD2
I also will sell this cable with the 16 pin connector on it that was used on some models from 94-95. I also will sell this cable with just pins on the wires so you can plug them into any OBD1 connector.

Both the USB version and the BT version will work with TunerPro RT (Windows XP +) and/or ALDLdroid (Android platform). You will have to add a switched power wire (included) to your ALDL connector if your ALDL connector doesn't have a test port for the fuel pump for the bluetooth version.
For basic first time scanning and troubleshooting the USB version is easier to set up and use. If you however anticipate just using your android phone when needed to quick pull up the scan info the BT one can be nice. Neither are very difficult to set up.
Both come with the free version of TunerPro RT. It runs 100% after a 10 second nag screen. If you wish to avoid the nag screen you can purchase a license however that is never required.
