Hello, I'm Chris.
I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.


Yes your car does have a data link connector that you can hook up a scan tool or performance programmer to that allows you to communicate with the computer via the OBD II communication lines.


A programmer is a easy way to achieve better performance.
