Does the obd2 port require a terminating resistor?

I'm finding very little info on this. I've got a gen iv 5.3 with an E38 ecm.

I'm planning to use a manual transmission, so there will be no transmission control module. Thus, the only two devices on the data bus are the ecm and the obd2 port. The ecm supposedly has a terminating resistor internal to itself. Am I supposed to add a resistor to the obd2 port? If so, how and what size?

I’m not sure if this will answer your question but when I started the engine before installing it I didn’t connect the transmission and wired up the obd2 to pull codes. It worked for me. I didn’t need a resistor.

You shouldn't have to add one. The OBD plug isn't a CAN node or a module, just an access point for reading data.
