OpenPort 1.3U logging & reflash cable for Mitsubishi and Subaru
Want to reflash a Subaru or Mitsubishi?
The OpenPort 1.3U is an USB device that
interfaces between your PC and car engine computers (ECUs)
that use a ISO 9141-2 compatible OBDII interface. It also contains special
hardware and connectors to allow it reprogram (reflash) most modern
(1996+) Mitsubishi ECUs* and 2002+ Subaru ECUs including the 01 to 06 WRX,
2004-2006 STi, Forrester XT, Legacy GT, Baja, 2001-2003 Eclipse GS/GT,
2002-2004 Lancer OZ and the EVO 7 through 9 series Mitsubishi*.
* PLEASE READ: Just recently, an
incompatibility has been uncovered regarding a few rare models of the Evo9 ETACs ECU. Until this is researched more thoroughly, Pin 9 on this
cable must be removed prior to plugging it in to any Mitsubishi model
vehicle. Pin 9 is used only for reflashing Subaru models and is not
needed at all on any Mitsubishi models.
Please do not purchase this cable for use on a
Mitsubishi vehicle without the full understanding that you must remove pin
9 (or ask us to remove it prior to shipping). If you want to order
this with Pin 9 pre-removed, we do have them stocked without Pin 9 so just
indicate that in your comments when placing the order.
More information and further
discussion about this issue can be found here…
Part Number: Openport 1.3U
includes Pin 9 installed (necessary for Subaru)
Part Number: Openport 1.3M has Pin 9 removed (for
Mitsubishi Evo only)
What can I do with it?
That depends on your car and the software available.
Although the cable itself can potentially communicate with any car that
has an ISO 9141-2 type OBDII interface, you are limited by what software
supports your vehicle and the cable. The efforts at openecu.org so far
have been focused on datalogging and reflashing of newer Subaru and
Mitsubishi vehicles. This cable is designed for use with
EvoScan software and there is also another application called
RomRaider available here.
Do I need drivers for the
EvoScan OpenPort cable?
