    'bout to bite the bullet and get the Cobb AP

    So is this thing literally plug and play?

    From what I understand it plugs into the OBD II connector, is that in the car it self or in the engine bay? (NOOBNESS)

    Thanks,

    Hooman

    Yeah it is, I have one on mine and it takes about 5 minutes to hook up to your car and your ready to go. And the OBD II connector is right under the steering wheel/column in your car, its hard to miss.

    It's likely under your steering column.

    EDIT: I should refresh a page before posting if I'm going to continue opening 20+ tabs at a time...

    Here's a tip: after you're done remapping your ECU, turn the ignition to the OFF position as per the instructions, but BEFORE trying to start the car, leave the car in the ON position for at least 5 seconds. This will allow the car to start on the first try. I did not know this and my car didn't start until the 3rd or 4th attempt.

    And yes the OBDII port is right below the steering column, you'll see it.. It doesn't even have a cover.

    Thanks everyone for the advice, links, and tips!

    One more quick question. I installed a 22mm rear sway bar to reduce body roll. Will rear endlinks add to that roll correction? Are they worth it?

    Rear endlinks make more of a difference than the bar, definitely worth it.

    No it's not just plug and play. You need the flux capacitor interface to make it work.
