Nice. I got that very adapter off eBay for £10.99 (inc. shipping). I ran it for the first time over the weekend and was very impressed. I also found out that the fault I thought I had wasn't actally what is wrong. It turns out I have have a duff oxygen sensor an one of the cats. It's £128 for a new one and you can fit them yourself. It's not a critical fault and as I've road tax to fork out for at the end of the month I'll wait until the end of April to replace it. In short, it paid for itself. I'm now going to see how well the RM Slate and provided software works with it.

It's just something custom at the minute, have you tried the torque web interface (I haven't, it may be better than what I've come up with for all I know!). The torque logging system is pretty stupid at the minute anyway, everytime it polls the sensors it sends http request which means that it sends thousands of http requests. It's not very elegant to say the least, but if I get something better working i'll release it

Are these things just for monitoring? I've got a mate with a speed limiter he doesn't want.

They can also be used to read car faults, clear faults and lots of other things. I'm mainly just using mine for logging stuff and viewing information I don't get on my dash.

Don't you have to remap the ECU to remove the speed limiter?

Well, this has paid for itself many times over. The error it detected was a faulting air/fuel sensor, and becuase it gives you the codes I found out that this one is on the manifold at the very front of the engine and can be changed on the drive at home in about 15 mins and a new (Toyota branded) part is £128 from Amazon. All in all, I reckon I've saved myself over £100 in garage fees (more actually as they would charge extra for the part as well).

Thats because mechanics are lawyers with dirty hands!
