    ok then what you need it to connect your transmission to CarPC serial port grab data, process it and output it via paralel port to your LCD

    You can also get Amtel or PIC controller that will elliminate the PC part but then you will need to design controller spesificly to much your needs. I can ask my engeeners to do the controller for you but that will be mad expansive .. well prolly like $1000 for work + ~$250 for PCB print and parts.

    the maker of the controller said you just connect a 2x16 lcd screen to a null modem cable. just 3 wires Ground, TXT, and RX

    this is a quote from the manual "Connect the serial port to a 16x2 serial display for an in car display of the current mode, gear, lockup, throttle, mph, and rpm!"

    ok then you dont need a controller.. so only thing you need is serial to paralel adapter (you LED is paralel it says so on the screen) Lat time i build LED display myslelf io remember there was a wiring diagram on how to convert serial to paralel.. that should not be that hard.
