I tried for HOURS to put the ECU behind that damn cover. I came very close but couldnt get it to snap closed. I even cut away the plastic bracket that holds the fuses in place so I could move them a little.

Needless to say my ECU is under the seat.

Hmm I'll have to look into fitting it behind the cover. At least ill hide it under a cover under the seat if I have to idk. MHO the ammo can needs to be tight in to the struts if your gunna run one. Maybe get one not so long and bolt it right to the struts?

I'll pull it apart tonight and take some snapshots of how I got it to fit, I appreciate Kevs direct comments, 14 years of the military has given me a thick skin and I take offense to nothing short of blasting my kids or wife

They probably didnt put it there because of the heat from the oilbag. Heat is not a electronics devices friend the ECM does have heat sink fins on it for cooling. The Placement does however look like an after thought but you wont get a better place than the wheel well for air movment and not be in the open for all to see. Just some thoughts.

Which seat kit did you use? Was it worth the price? Im not sure if I really need to buy a mount kit or if I can easily make my own mount.
