Power Module

I just bought used off e-bay a hypertech power module for my 1994 4.0L auto 4x4 ranger. It was supposed to have the instructions with it, it doesn't. My question is where is the computer service port located for the chip to plug into? Everything I have read said under the hood drivers side fender well. I haven't seen any such port for this module to plug into. I am sure some one else here as added one of these. Can you tell me where it is and what I am looking for? Thanks!

I didn't find a connector under the dash unless its hidden out of site somewhere. The only instructions I got with it were the ones for cleaning the connectors port itself, in the picture it looks like it plugs directly into the computer, but I have never seen an auxiliary port on a ford ecm just the main that the under hood harness plugs in to. I am also thinking those are generic instructions for all power modules.
