    Where is everyone mounting their computers? I am having a hard time finding a good spot with a full interior with all the A/C and ductwork, inner fenders, etc. I want to do a clean install. The original plan was under the hood, behind the drivers headlight, but I have switched my cold air intake to that side. I am willing to Rewire the whole thing to make it work.

    One suggestion And where I mounted my Crane HI-6TR.Is by the tranny tunnel and the passenger foot well with MSD rubber shock mounts.Even if you have to build a box to protect it.

    I put mine behind the wheel well near the factory junction box, on the firewall.

    I had my DBW box there, but I removed that, and it looks like a great spot for the computer! Now, I just need to get some ideas for making/reworking my fuse block and where to mount that to.

    I installed mine on the drivers side under the fender.

    I installed mine behind the dash above the AC evaporator.

    you can see it in the upper-right part of the firewall.
