You would need a cable that connects from the OBD port of your car, to the laptop USB or parallel port, along with software.

When the OP mentioned Fast and Furious, I was expecting a wave of abuse to follow but you suprised me Mathew.

Cool thing about hooking a laptop to the OBD ports is that you can do a bit of datalogging as well and also read fault codes.
