Default 99-00 Guys. How are you mounting the Adap?

I saw steins big baller installer but won't be copying his method so I was wondering what everyone else was doing for a permanent option. I'll go look at it now and report back with what I decide of my own accord. Anyway find any revolutionary position where it appears to have been made to fit

there is a weird dash void up above the gas pedal where you could shove an adaptronic. I probably will do that. and then zip tie the **** out of everything.

I'd like to bolt it down if possible. It got dark on me fast. I want to autocross sunday. Think I can install and have it tuned for Sunday morning tomorrow? I plan to be in Nashville all day Saturday for a DMB/Jason Mraz concert so I only have tomorrow.
Zip ties will work as well, thats the last resort.

Mine's mtd. same place as Stein's but bolted in using some thin al. angle. I also relocated the factory ecu to make room for the adaptronic harness/pc board.

Jesus, I'll have to look at this and see what I can come up with then. Looks like I have a few options, thanks for the effort man, I might copy some of it.

Could, but y'all wouldn't be able to afford what we would have to charge for a piece of square tubing with three bolts welded into it. Take another look at my install page. It's dead simple to make the bracket, plus it puts the plug to hook up the laptop in easy access but completely out of sight when unplugged and not tuning.

I'll check out your bracket again Stein.
Though I'm currently considering putting velcro on the top of the case and mounting it directly to the stock ECU just like i had the megasquirt. Takes 1 minute, its slightly padded, good velcro doesn't budge, I don't have to go hustle my way into a shop and its still out of the way.
