I have a friend...

that owns a Snap On mechanics scanner thingy ma jig. He said he has the Ford PSD in it for my 97 PSD. He told me anytime I wanted he would hook it up and see whats going on with my motor/trans. He said to stop by and he would hook it up.
My question is what can I do with this scanner in regards to performance enhancements? Other than looking for codes what should I check out? As you can tell I don't know any of the terminology for this Snap On device. He told me it cost a bundle and I have free range with it.
thanks in advance. My truck is stock.
