OBD-II port - where??

Just got my X-Cal2. Where's the OBD-II port in a 05 V6? I know, under the left side of the dash, but where? Is there anything to remove or disconnect?

left side, under dash... put your head underneath the steering wheel and look up and to the left..... it's just at the bottom of where the dash ends... right on the edge...

Ok, got it. For the benefit of anybody in the future who's as blind as I am (not f'ing LIKELY)...


Don't look on the wall under the dash. It's right on the bottom lip of the dash itself. Think vinyl. You can actually see part of it without even putting your head underneath.

Tune works good btw.

Yep, the X-Cal2 is pretty amazing... especially if you have an auto. Made a night and day difference on my car. I run the 93 Octane tune... I've spent the last couple of nights "tweaking" the transmission shift schedule... Basically my car no longer shifts into 4th gear at 20 MPH at light/medium throttle... LOL! My gas mileage is probably gonna suck... but it's a lot more fun this way... at least I think so... now the wife just walked in and told me there is something wrong with my car... LOL! She doesn't like the new shift schedule...

I got the 93 tune too. What shift schedule are you using? Is there any way to find out what the schedule is now? SCT's doc could be a LOT better!
