Pretty sure it's on the passengers side near the firewall and the postive post that connects to the batt in the trunk.

If you are chipping her, you might want to make the ecu water proof, put some shrink wrap on the box. Some people had bad run in's with the car wash or rain flooding the ecu...

Thanks,
will check the chip in the next couple of days...who knows, last owner may have already chip'd her. I'll also check the water proofing of the area and ecu....what am I looking for as far as leaking?

It has to do with your drainage holes, the holes aren't big enough to drain the water fast enough. If I can I'll find the thread(s) on this topic. It also has to do with the holes near the windsheild wiper arms..

Here's one, if read up look at DJcontra's post about shrink wrapping.
