Default New invention, convert OBD1/MUT into Canbus OBD2 for Torque App, and read Flex Fuel

There's a nice app called Torque for android devices, but it requires OBD2 compliant ECU, which most of our cars are not. I have made a converter box, that does the following:

- input Mitsubishi OBD1, Hybrid or MUT (94-95 USA ECU), MUT (94-99 Euro ECUs), MUT (98-99 USA ECU), LCDBC datalog port, or Scanmaster3 port.
- input Flex Fuel sensor
- input Boost Sensor, Fuel Sensor, Oil pressure Sensor, WBO2 Sensor
- outputs data via high speed Canbus OBD2
- output 0-5V flex fuel voltage, to display flex fuel % on LCDBC unit via Ext1, Ext2, Ext3 or Ext4.

The goal of the device is to display useful data on the Torque app, such as:
Knock, RPM, Boost, WBO2, Flex Fuel, etc.

The item will cost about $70. OBD1 or MUT cables are $20 extra. I am trying to figure out how many circuit boards I need to order, so I made a poll.

Sorry, at this time it is for Mitsubishi OBD1 cars only, such as 3000GT, GTO, Stealth, DSM, EVO, etc. Other OBD1 car manufactures implement OBD1 protocol differently, so they won't work unless I re-write the software to support them too.

So add in a $5 OBD2 Bluetooth ELM327 and you can transmit wireless to android device.

Maybe I wasn't as clear as I should have been. I use a bluetooth elm for my other vehicles...

My 3k is obd1.

I used mmcd to log... Would much rather use torque.

Is your device going to be a basic obd1 to obd2 plug that then the elm will plug into or is it a complete replacement for an elm adaptor?

This device will have an OBD2 connector much like an OBD2-compliant car would have, so you just plug in your bluetooth elm327 wireless adapter into it.

blackstealth, i really like your lcdbc that I have installed. Will the Torque app display more info than I can get on your lcdbc? I know the Torque app is probably prettier, but I like the form factor of the lcdbc.

LCDBC users: Pretty Torque app, new Flex Fuel monitoring, and alternative datalogging besides mmcd, pocketlogger, HHH, and Evoscan.

Non-LCDBC users: Same as above, but now they have a way of interfacing Boost Sensor, Fuel Sensor, Oil Sensor, WBO2 for datalogging / monitoring.

For those of us that have an Android based 7" GPS car radio, this will make your car look cooler. You can youtube Torque app on what it does. Here's one video:

I've seen posts where people are selling the old-style Palm data loggers with cables, etc, for OBD1. Am I right that your new invention plus Torque on an Android device is a newer equivalent to that?
