    MPScan USB FTDI cable advice

    Hello, I am about to dive into socketing and tuning my SMEC. I already have the Ostrich and have found / downloaded MPTune and MPScan.

    I am about to build a cable for MPScan and would like some current info *if there is any* about what cable / chip guys have the best success with. I would like to order one tomorrow.

    Thanks for any input!

    Can I have a link or see pictures of the car end of the cable you provide? If it's nice and sturdy I'd be interested. That's my challenge, making a plug for the car side that isn't just loose wires.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    The BoostButton previous versions used a small board with male spade terminals soldered right to the board.
    So they were/are fairly robust.
    Here's a version 2:
