I'll prep the files and set everything up for you but my plate is kinda full with the 964 and MY95 993 LWF eprom fix. If Chris is going to help with the components maybe I can have the boards shipped to him? $3USD vs. $26USD, I will PM you later tonight for the files.

Agreed - but if we are going an alternate route, I need a volunteer to step up and work out the details, and take responsiblity for it.

If I handle this buy, I'm going to stay with the expensive source because I have experience with it, it's a known quantity, and other peoples' money is on the line.

That's just my comfort level; I know it's not optimal. How badly do you want to save $20? If you want it badly enough to arrange the buy at a cheaper supplier, we should talk.

That should be OK if you add the postage - you'll have to estimate what USPS would charge.

I'm in for one @ $26, bare board. But if the cheap <$5 order is worked out I'd get two.
Plus I owe for one @ $26.
The interface circuit converts RS232 to OBD. It doesn't care what car or software.
2 issues if not '1995 993' or 964 with Dougs scantool & Rays interface.

1) Some other applications need an interface circuit that the app recognizes. i.e. You can download, for free, the app but you must buy their interface board. Some apps don't care what interface you use. Generally all 'for sale' apps are written for OBD2 DME and not Porsche CCU,etc accessories..

2) 'Rays interface' and 'Dougs software' probably works on later OBD2 993 Porsches. Somone needs to figure out changes to scantool.cfg and possibly K. K', L OBD connector pin connections. You should be able to read and clear the accessory fault codes as well as look at DME. 1995 993 CCU, SRS, etc are later versions of 964 devices and later 993 use the same or later versions as used by 1995. I'd guess reading/clearing fault codes would be fairly easy to make work.

Count me in too; although I'd prefer an unassembled bag of parts. Then I can dive into the meat and potatoes of it all.

I'd take an assembled one too. If not available then just the board.

This is very, very cool. I'm most definitely in! Thanks to you guys for the R&D, and to Chris for getting the parts together. My first preference is for a fully assembled unit ready to go. If not, then I'll take a PCB and a bag of parts ...that's ok, too. My last resort is PCB only. Anyway you look at it, though, I'm in. Let me know and I will paypal the funds.

BTW, maybe I missed it, but how do we get the software?

I'm in too !
If someone can assemble it for me, I would take an assembled one. Don't want my lack of soldering skills to trigger the airbags

Thanks for the effort.

No matter what direction this takes (bare PCB, bare PCB plus parts kit, or assembled PCB), please count me in...

Thanks to everyone for their efforts.
