Digital readout of engine specs?

I'd like to connect my laptop to my car, probably by the ECU (I haven't a clue if it's even possible). With that, I'd like to be able to read every bit of information that is available (engine temp, RPMs, HP usage, boost pressure, etc...) on my laptop. Probably connecting it via USB. Again, I don't know if it's possible - I couldn't find any threads pertaining to exactly what I was looking for. If I missed something, do tell!

As far as I know, you would have to use Hondata (expensive solution) or something like that. I know that Hondata does it because that's what I use.

Maybe some of the tuning gurus here can tell you if the other chipped ECUs can read the parameters to a laptop on the fly...

here you go

http://www.xenocron.com/moates-hondalog-p-157.html

not only can you view all that information on an OBDI Honda ECU, but you can also record all that information while you are driving, and you can tune everything to your own needs with a chipped ECU, datalogging cable, laptop, and a chip burner/emulator
