    Come across a small issue. Dneg made up a USB cable to plug into the Greddy box (usb > serial > usb) but it's not playing ball. I'm no pc whiz but I think my laptop can't read anything that comes from the cable. Have installed the port drivers required for the dongle but still no ball.

    It's a Belkin adapter, got 64 bit Windows 8 drivers but it still doesn't read. Hunting for a Greddy cable to see if that makes a difference. Or possibly another laptop.

      Instructions from the internet that involve parts from eBay, a soldering iron and a serial to USB adapter.......
      It was toss of the coin it working before I made it.

        Could it be the serial cable part of the equation? Because even on 8bit PLCs the speed difference between a serial cable and a com's cable is huge. Serial cable is almost pointless its that slow. Band width difference I guess.

          Got the instructions from here - http://www.migee.com/2010/05/06/diy-...-from-scratch/

          It's going to be like the old Mclaren F1 cars. I'll need some 1990's laptop so I can plug in a cable lol

            That's the jigger I bought, looks like its whats needed?
            That Belkin adapter is mint, have used it before with serial stuff and its been good.

                    Good quality FTDI adaptor, eg http://au.rs-online.com/web/p/usb-ca...blies/8888801/ works on VSDs, PLCs and things at 57600baud

                    Car is awesome.

                          Borrowed a proper Greddy cable this evening, will give it a whirl tomorrow. Was told to try running the program in XP support mode as admin, fingers crossed it works.

                              Looks like the greedy mang cable worked a treat, thing has all sorts of dodgy 1990's settings you can fiddle with - its setup with 440cc injectors.



                              There is a Haltech E11 for sale here for $500 which would be ideal........

                                Yeh it all seems to work. Only things that have been touched is the fuel map and boost cut. It's in volts so nfi what that translates to. Dyno is booked for wednesday, fingers crossed.
