Default Just a newbie question about tuning

I'm about ready to purchase a CAI/Tuner combo, probably one with an XcalII... I've never done one of these before so can anyone tell me how I go about installing the tuner? Thanks

The tuner plugs into the OBD port under the dash under the steering wheel... you push a few buttons, sit back while your computer is reflashed, remove the tuner plug from the port and start the car. That's it.

I am assuming you will be getting an SCT XCal2. It's completely brainless.

Thanks, and it looks like a CAI is an easy install, any trouble installing it?

If you are comfortable installing a new outlet cover in your house, you should be OK.
