  • My custom DSM/Stealth OBD1 / MUT2 scanner

    I decided to make a custom OBD1 scanner for my car. Mitsubishi's OBD1 found on Stealths/3000GTs/DSM communicate differently than let's say GMs, so information on this is hard to come by. But nevertheless, I did manage to make it work. I can scan many ECU items, scan Check Engine Light error codes (in English instead of a number), and clear them. I hate having a cluttered interior, so I installed my wideband O2, and boost gauge information on there as (WBO2, PSI). Knock information is pretty important for us tuners, so I put that up there too.

    Next I wanted to get rid of my greddy profec boost controller and free up some more clutter. Check, that's done. Now that I have two technologies merged into one thing (scanner and boost controller), I can do something new, which is lower the turbo boost pressure if the engine is knocking.

    My friend wanted one for his car, but his car didn't communicate with OBD1. His 94 Stealth RT/TT communicated in Mitsubishi's MUT2 protocol found on (94-99 3000GTs/Stealths), and also found on DSM (97-99). After studying the MUT2 diagnostic protocol, I can pull the same OBD1 information such as Knock, Timing, Fuel Trims, etc. So I made one unit for him too.

    Anyone with a tuned car needs to keep an eye that their tune is still good between season changes. So I gave this scanner/boost controller another job. It monitors the tune, and if the tune starts drifting to a dangerous lean condition it will flash the screen red and alert the driver, and then followup with the information he needs to rectify it (such as Knock, WBO2 AFR, Boost PSI, and RPM location).

    Earlier video of it in action, I've changed the menus around a bit since then.

        tom04841: The 95-96 DSM communicates differently -- I won't have that done till a few months later.

        jontheinstaller: Are you using a PC for the screen? I can point you to the right direction for making a cable and OBD1 software requests.
