I have a autometer gauge, but I just went to best buy and got a firewire cable with the one correct end to plug into the x3. I didnt use any special cable and it works fine.

I just set up my AEM wideband to my X3. I believe any standard firewire cable will do.
Once you cut off one cable end, you use only one of the wires in it anyway to connect to the white wire of your AEM harness. I believe the difference between the Apple brand and others may be the colour coding of the internal wires, but I'm not sure; I used an Apple cable. (On the Apple firewire cable end, you want the red lead.)

ok...well I looked up the apple firewire cable and it came back with two diffrent kinda, mainly pertaining to the pins. 4-6 pin and 6-6 pins. which one do I need to have?
can I buy an apple firewire cable from bestbuy? lol

And I'm sure Best Buy will have a suitable cable.

I bought my cable from a computer store for 5 bucks. The only thing that messed me up with it was that the analog wires were reversed from the one that SCT sells. That was the only diff though. The colors were the same. If you get one, just look at the diagram SCT has for theirs, and do a pin test on yours to check if its the same or a little diff.
