Default Installing a Scangauge...

So I've been looking at one of these babies lately...

http://www.scangauge.com/

I know that a lot of it is already reported via the DIC, but then a lot isn't as well. It seems to me that the stupid useless cubby in the overhead console (I don't have a sunroof) would be a PERFECT place to mount this sucker... but where is our OBD port exactly? Passenger side footwell? I figure I could route the cable through the headliner, down the a-pillar and right to the hookup. Good idea?

I wonder if that can fit inside a DIN opening... Anyways, yeah they're pretty much plug and play. That looks like a pretty cool (and cheap) alternative to an aeroforce.

You can add in vehicle specific gauges by entering certain codes.
