The 928 OC has the original form of the 928 Diag tool.
I don't know which is better for scanning.

I thought the JDS tool could be used for tuning as well.

The Porsche Hammer is another scanning tool.

Yes Stan it says that it can be used for tuning as well.
I guess thats what would make it more valuable and expensive.
Man that is a lot of Cash to fork out plus the extras which in my opinion there is no use in only buying half of something.

The Sharktuner isn't really a scan tool - it won't read the ecu fault codes or run through the diagnostic procedures for testing all the various inputs. You can infer many of them however when using a Sharktuner (e.g. knock/hall sensor faults can be inferred by watching the timing retard, or throttle switch not detecting WOT etc.).

JDS also make a tool called the "Spanner" which is equivalent to the Bosch Hammer and will read 928 fault codes, run idle adaption routines, reset airbag faults, test all the sensors, actuators and ecu inputs (e.g. AC switch idle compensation, or Idle Stabiliser Valve tests with engine off). There is also Theo's diagnostic software which does the same as the Hammer/Spanner and runs on a laptop (which is what the OC bought).

I have a Sharktuner II, and a local mate has a JDS Spanner.. both are useful.

We've got both the Bosch KTS (Hammer) tool and the shark tuner. For everyday diagnosis, the hammer does it best. The ST is used more for tuning.
