the cable it self is easy to fabricate, locating the 5 prong connector, that is easier said than done...
best bet visit a local junk yard, hopefully they have a pre 95 classic and snip a terminal from anywhere as long as it is a five prong can't remember if you will need male or female side.. then follow instructions for the build.

I'm in the process of making one now. Although I'll be splicing in a new connector in parallel with the factory one. Because the 5 prong ones are hard to find. I started on it this weekend but realized I accidentally ordered 390k ohm resistors rather than 390 ohm resistors. So I'm now waiting on the new ones to show up.

You can get everything you need for about $35 on Amazon. I did have to order 500 of the resistors so I'll have some to spare.

However, because the FTDI converter is a 5V device, the 12V signal from the ECU must be attenuated with an external resistor to prevent damage.

I'll let you know how things work out. The new resistors should be here tomorrow so I should be able to get it made up and tested over the weekend at the latest.

This is the cable I ordered
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o05_s00

For the plug I'm just using a Molex LP4 plug that I'll be splicing in to the wires of the test book plug. So I can still retain the old plug.

I'm sure there are fancier plugs one could use but I figured this should work well enough.

Got the cable built and tested last night. Overall was not too bad. I ended up finding enough items in a parts truck to make the 5 pin plug. Which was probably the hardest part of this.

I ended up cutting the loop back connector off to get my 5 pin connector. I could find any on my '97 DI parts truck. There is a 3 pin connector for the rear sunroof switch that you can extract the 3 pins out of the use in the 5 pin connector. They have little lock tabs on the sides so be careful not to break them. I used a punch of just the right size and tapped them out and that worked ok.

Once you have all the parts assembly is pretty straight forward. Just use the instructions posted above by Red90 and the serial cable I linked. You will also need the 390 ohm resistor.

You can get the pins from Autosparks. They have both male and female. Also, Lisle 57750 Wire Terminal Tool Kit has all the little poking, prodding and wedging whatsises on it to undo pretty much any automotive connector. Kinda like a set of lock picks for terminals.
