I contemplated that place for a minute too, but decided against it. Too much crap there, rear window heater and power mirror controls that I didn't want to relocate.
For now, the controller is in the engine bay near the brake booster, covered in some foam from the box it came in
of course my battery is empty so I couldn't get the bitch to calibrate properly
so that'll have to wait until I source a battery charger
knocksense is in place too, I used one of the bolt holes where the AC pump would go, all wires run along the tranny up the shiftboot. the led for the knocksense is on top of the steering column, in front of the tach.
wanted to check out the spark plugs, but couldn't find the right tool that would actually fit in the holes of the valve cover
more to be done next tuesday
