    18 inches is the maximum cable length specified by the IDE standard. You can go longer but as you do so you run the risk of errors and eventually the drive not being sensed at all. I'm unsure how sensetive the PS2 is vs a regular computer, but just watch out for it if you're trying to make a run like from the trunk to the dash (prolly impossible). Glovebox to dash or something like that would be doable.
