I have a serial cable coming out of the dash on the passenger side. By your post I assume that both USB and serial cables are provided.

I guess my question is.. what is the usb port for on the UTEC. There is nothing mentioned in the manual.

jaysen, you were supposed to leave the wires connected so you can tune without pulling the UTEC out :)

Hey toykilla i had to buy one of those usb to serial adaptors for my laptop. It actually works.
I used it to reprogram some equipment at work.

10 dollars and free shipping.

This is where i bought mine a few years back.

good luck!

or you can go to
www.pricewatch.com

and type "usb to serial" in the search bar.
theres a bunch of them.

I have used this site for locating computer parts for the past 15 years.
