So are you trying to read codes?If so you you will need a scan tool that will do the in between the obd1 and 2 set up. Some of the actron scan tools does them. Some of the otc scan tools will do them. Let me know what your trying to do.

I'm sure that it has one cause it said 95 S10 have the OBD1 setup and the 96 and up have the OBD2 setup but my truck have the OBD2 port under the dash. That what have me confused. But when I tried the OBD2 scanner on the port just to see if it'll read out it says no link. But it'll read out if I jump wire it.

Your not supposed to be able to flash codes out of those that have the obd2 connector on the 95 and down vechiles. See if there is a little door that comes off your computer held in by a screw were you can swap out the eprom?

Looks like you have a removable eprom so you would get a performance eprom to put in your computer.

Yes it have a door with two screws, but I've checked to see if a performance chip would be compatible for a turbo and everyone said no that the ecu itself have to be programmed.

Your best bet is find a speed shop that does ecm mapping with the truck on a dyno.

I've found out that 94 & 95 gm vehicles have OBD1.5 setup which is basically OBD1 with a 16 pin connector and found a connector for it. But thanks for the help and thought that you would like to know.

Thanks I did know that remember I mentioned that in my first post to you about not all the scan tools wont read those?I have worked on those cars and they actually read out obd2 codes on the scan tools. As far as programing the ecm yourself I wouldnt recommend it especially with a turbo. Thats why I mentioned having the ecm maped they put your truck on a dyno under a load like your driving down the street. They program the ecm to match the engine turbo etc you have for optimum performance.
