Hi, hope you don`t mind if I ask which system it is? Were they thinking  
about running FreeDOS on the actual engine controller, or on a PC that  
interfaces with it? I have tinkered with some aftermarket engine  
electronics (MS, megajolt, ostrich) and they all used RS232 to  
communicate, but sometimes with a RS232-USB adaptor in between.
