If the Cooks Ferry method is of interest,give them a call,I'm sure they'll help,I'd like to think they wouldn't be too descriptive,after all you could be a tealeaf

There is a wealth of info on ways you can DIY in this thread:

For info,moving the OBD port yourself is easy,quick and needs minimal skill,and few tools.

It also costs zilch,unless you elect to buy an extension cable for the port,or buy an OBD blank.

You mentioned 'helpful', how'd I do?
lol that is a little more helpful, though I already read both of those threads you mentioned and that didn't tell me what the Cooks Ferry mod was, hence my question.

What's to stop a dodgy crook from phoning Cooks Ferry and asking them what they do? Just having the information on a forum doesn't make it insecure if Cooks Ferry are happy to disclose the information by phone.

If they aren't happy to disclose the information by phone, then it would be more helpful to suggest I don't bother calling them unless I am prepared to get my wallet out to find out what they do.

So there

No tension on my part, I'm not like some kind of lame keyboard warrior who wouldn't say the same thing at a meetup or whatever. Speaking of which, see you at the Ace on Saturday morning if you're there. I'll buy you a cup of tea for you to ease the tension
