Look at the installed pic in the first post. The kick plate fits over that. MSPNP, MS3 Pro, AEM EMS-4 and Adaptronic all fit under there using this bracket. I can't speak for Reverent's ECUs because I don't have one on hand nor do I have measurements.

Since the Rev boxes don't have mounting tabs, designing an add-on piece to bolt them to the bracket would just be a matter of getting one in my hands for a day.

Please don't take my comment as criticism, I'm actually very interested in buying one of these. Maybe it's an optical illusion? Would you mind snapping a few more photos of the bracket both installed and on it's own from a few more angles?

Ryan I can grab some measurements next time it's in my hands. Vlad has one too currently.

After staring at the pic some more, what I assumed was a vertical lift of a few inches is actually a diagonal jog to the left! That makes much more sense. As soon as I get back to the states I'm ordering two of these.

No offense taken, just making sure there isn't any misunderstanding that others may read and get confused by

I won't be able to get additional pics for a few days at least, but I'll see what I can do.

Why did you do this angle to the right anyway and didn't use the left and 2nd left mounting screw like the OEM bracket does? That would make it an 90-05 bracket I guess...

This would be great. No intention to leave Rev ECUs out on this, it just didn't fall into the list of ECUs which come with integrated mounting tabs.

I have an idea already for a simple add-on for a Rev ECU to adapt it to the bracket. Would just need precise measurements.

This shape avoids a stud that sticks out of the floor - which you can kind of see in the installed pic in post 1 - passing over this stud would have raised the bracket a couple millimeters. I also like the diagonal shape for spreading the load of the ECU among the mounting points better than if the bracket extended straight down to the two holes directly below. Similar to a hammock.

Over where you are, I believe they kept the ECU in the footwell for nearly all years yes? In the states, they are only in this location from 90-93, then they move. 94-97 is behind the passenger seat, 99+ is under the dash.

Because I don't exactly have any EU cars here, I can't have easily known what similarities/differences existed across the years in your case.

Ah I see, I will take some pictures of my EU car tomorrow for reference purposes ...

I hear you Dimitris.
It wasn't an attack at you specifically, since DIY and pretty much anyone else selling these either doesn't have tabs on the cases or has dinky little ones meant for zip ties only or something. I just can't imagine that whoever is making these cases can't integrate at least something we can work with.

Anyways, I've already "solved" my mounting problem
But can provide dimensions or input on anything you guys need.

Plus eleventybillion. My simple bent up brackets in my build thread work, but they are less than ideal. I don't mind drilling holes in an ECU to facilitate mounting if there were some properly designed brackets out there.

Hmmm I want to throw my money at this but I also have a DIYBOB addon board on my MS3x, which looks like it may be hard to mount on the bracket as well.

Email us a photo/dimensions and we can see what we can do about it.

WTB: brackets that install themselves along with the ecu so I don't have to remove my seat, go upside down with my calves on the roll bar, and get cramps in my obliques contorting my head and arms under the dash.

Ryan you can do it.

I'm reading that as you'd like to be able to mount the ECU to the bracket outside of the car and then be able to bolt the bracket/ecu combo in place as a unit?

That's how this 90-93 version is intended to be installed, and how I plan to make the 99+ version.

The other way I could read that is you want a self-installing bracket/ecu... which I'm not sure I can make happen..

How about an ECU bracket that installs in the passenger airbag compartment, for those of us that have deleted the airbags?

/\ that would be easy, actually.
And so would making a 99+ bracket to mount MS in OEM location considering you can just copy the oem orientation and run a plate or piece of metal or anything you want connecting the two mounts and with like 2-4 holes in the plate to mount the MS.

I see good potential for this idea

Yup, that's the gist of it. The idea is to keep the ECU in the factory location - no relocation necessary, the wiring is already ready to rock and roll there, it's a secluded/safe spot, etc.

Also working on adapters for Reverent ECUs to fit our brackets.

I'm very interested. I just installed a Rev MS3 in my '99 a month or two ago, but I had to go the zip tie route like everyone else. I'd love a rigid bracket.

And I second the fantastic idea of a version 2 that extrudes tiny robotic legs and crawls up in there itself and nestles itself in your car's loins like a parasite, so I can skip all the "unbolt seat and flip myself around" hassle that Mobius mentioned. I'd pay at least another $25 for that option.
