    Hello,

    I am buying a megasquirt and a EEC-IV adapter board
    The site says I also need the 4' DB37 relay cable which costs $70

    I can get a DB37 cable for half that at a local computer store, my question is are they the same?

    Please let me know ASAP, I want to buy this tonight!

    :D

    I'm not 100% sure so you can take this at face value... For some reason some USB cables will not work with the megasquirt. I remember reading that in the build manual. So I'd be inclined to say "no".

    If you get the cable from the vendor you at least know that it will work. Maybe someone who knows will chime in.

    Just my $.02
