Is this similar to a tune? From the looks and sound of it, it seems like you can mess around with the settings of the car such as AF ratio...?

Not in the least bit. It's a diagnostic tool, not a tuning tool.

Anyone have a source for a cheap cable? The ones I am seeing on Ebay are about $25 with the software.

I do have a spare cable though. I'll take $15 shipped for it. It'll go out tomorrow or Friday if paid before then via USPS Priority Mail.

Back to the topic at hand. It's great to have the software but what about drivers for the cable for Win 7? Without that the software is useless.

Can we get a DIY of installing this? I'm trying to do it through BootCamp on my MacBook Pro running Windows 7 and it doesn't seem to work.

It doesn't work because you need mini vci drivers for Windows 7. From my search I cannot find any so I'm hoping the OP can chime in to provide them. Without the drivers for the cable the software is useless.

I can't even get past the registration window. I put in the number for North America from the .txt file and the window just pops up again.

I don't know what you mean by "work". We lack drivers for anything higher than Windows XP. So if you're running a 32 bit version of XP, sure it'll work because there are drivers for the cable. If you're running anything else, the Techstream software will load but without the drivers foe the cable you're unable to do anything.
