Default plug ID (similar to RJ???) not audio.

I'm trying to ID the plug on the left in the attached image. I put a rj45 connector next to it, for comparison. It's from a machine that programs fuel injectors for GM automobiles. I think the pin spacing is too wide for it to be rj12 compatible, but I don't actually have an rj12 plug to compare it with.
I need a new one!

Thanks for any info.

Have you browsed Digikey or Mouser paper catalogs? They list a lot of peculiar connectors.

I dont have the paper catalogs anymore..
I suppose I could click through the PDF catalog, and look at the pics that way...
I've tried searching, but don't really know what to search for.. 6 pin modular connector or 6 pin RJ*, 6 pin ribbon connector, etc, don't find any matches.

Only thing I have seen like that was on a wired telephone handset.

This kind of thing.

Thanks MGregg.. That BT plug looks very close.. Frustratingly close!
I think the only difference is the single side clip vs two on mine..
It might be worth trying.

The other thing I've been thinking about, if all else fails, is trying to reset this plug, and re-crimp it...

There's actually a lot of room inside the plug end... I could fit a stiff piece of metal in it, and possibly press the conductors out a little.. maybe w/ the help of a little heat.
Has anyone ever tried anything like that? Connectors are usually plentiful, so probably not...
