I don't see the problem with it as long as you have a chipped ECU. Just get an old USB cable and cut off one end.

Here's the pinout, from Xenocron's website: http://www.xenocron.com/install/USB-Board.htm

You may have to look up the USB side online to see which wires are GND, TX, and RX.

EDIT: If you want to be fancy, keep the USB cable intact and just buy a female connector at an electronics store (example: http://parts.digikey.com/1/parts/392...7068-8000.html). Then you just need to mount it and solder three wires in place.

The ECU uses TTL (transistor-transistor logic). The reason we use things like the old school nokia cable or Moates Hondalog/HULOG is because they have a TTL to USB converter built in.

So, NO, you cannot use just a plain USB cable to datalog.

You're right. I just checked my cable, and it has a TTL sticker on the side, even though it looks like a standard USB cable.

Disregard my previous post, unless you have a spare TTL USB cable.

USB and TTL use different logic levels. So nothing would happen.

Go to Welcome to www.moates.net! : Moates.Net and spend the $35 on a HULOG.
