    Yes, we've already established that BULGIN PX0441/xM00 USB Cable will work (regardless of the different lengths available).
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    What I did was I used a USB cable with a 90° end that plugs in the ECU (you can get left or right) it was 12 inches long then I ran the cable and mounted it under the dash where I have easy access to it, and use a regular USB extension cable any length you want to plug into that cable so the plug on the ECU is not disturbed. The 90° end that plugs on the ECU is also very short so it don't stick out. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I thought about that, but if mounting the ECU under the hood it makes sense to buy the Holley or mouser part, then you can simply have it tucked under the dash or use a mounting block and flush mount on the dash, or near the OBD diagnostics port of the car. Holley did a good job of dealing the HP ECU against the elements and to save $25 and potentially allow water in is a bad plan. And even if mounting inside the car, vibration could dislodge a generic USB, or cause glitches when connected to a laptop. In my humble opinion, it's simply not worth the risk for such an expensive piece of electronics

    My ECU is under the dash and that long plug got in the way very tight fit, LOL. The 90° plug is actually a snug fit and very short in the ECU I haven't had any issues with it coming loose so far I do have the cable coming from the ECU zip tied, so there's no strain on the plug. I don't have the laptop hooked up all the time. The car is just a pleasure car, it's just one of those things whatever works best for you and your installation. Joey.S
