    WTB - Old OBD2 tuning cables

    Anyone have an old OBD2 tuning cable hanging around that you don't need? Looking for old tunercats (if you have upgraded to the new cable) or possibly any others made by AVT.

    Just bringing this back to the top in case someone has an old one they want to part with before I buy a development unit.

    I am probably going to get one from there but all I really need right now is an older cable that supports VPW. So if someone has upgraded and wants to sell their old cable cheaper than what I can get a new one for I'm all for saving a few bucks.

    Its for a good cause....

    Yeah I talked to them about those but none of them will do what I need them to do or at least they could not guarantee they would work.

    What exactly is the purpose of the box in middle of cable? I thought it was for wrting blocks? LT1 can flash without a box but it is entire bin file. The box is also what encrypts/decrypts files in some software IIRC.

    Even with the cable/box the software end is huge?

    The box in the middle translates the OBD2 protocol into something that the computer can understand whether its VPW, CAN, etc. I'm hoping to have something interesting for us to play with in the coming year.

    I have my original serial box from TCII.
    I don't really want to get rid of it since my backup computer is setup for it and i'm a hoarder.
    I really need to be able to datalog and burn OBDI though.
    I would be interested in trading for a moates setup or similar that will allow me to do that possibly.
