SCT X3 Tuner used as OBDII code reader?

Hi guys, I just ordered an SCT X3 tuner from Bamachips and I know I can use it on my car to read the OBD II codes. I also know I can't use it to flash my tunes on other mustangs. (unless returning mine to factory)
What I am wondering is if I can still use this to pull codes from any other car with the OBD II system even though it will be set for use on my car?

Vince.

Thanks for the info, stlwagon. I have a code reader that works on almost every make and model. I was just thinking that if the SCT would work the same I could give the other one to my dad to work on his stuff.
Oh, well. You can't have too many tools I guess.
Thank again,

Vince.
