If you look under the steering column you will see a pair of green and a pair of black connectors, I believe all coms to the ecu go through these connectors, I maybe wrong though....

As is mine, little 'pocket', just above the lower lip of the lower dash panel just to the right of the column...

Standard OBD 'D1962' connector.

Cheers guys, I want to hook my laptop up so I can do some datalogging.
Im looking into extracting as much power as I can but keeping the stealth idea, especially since Ive just got rid of an impreza and told everyone I was getting a 'sensible' car.
Ive been looking at some of the previous posts to get some ideas of what other people have done to their cars.
Gotta say this is a great site.
