Default I don't get why you guys keep bitching about the ECU location!

Passenger footwell, easy:



The factory metal kick guard fits over the whole thing but I stuck a sheet of thick plastic on the underside of the guard to prevent shorting.

I feel for you guys with LHD cars.

FIY that's where the EUDM have the ECU as well. This my previously installed MS-1 in parallel to the stock ECU.

There is the same space on the (at least European) NBs even on the left hand drivers car - of course the metal kick-panel is on the right (and correct side) then.

the wires on the harness from Adaptronic has enough wire to mount the ecu on the trans tunnel where my heater core was. there harness need like 3 feet more of wire. that's the only thing i like about the greddy, has like a 6 foot harness even if it's like 5lbs

Yeah, I had to shove mine up by the steering wheel. I wish the harness was longer, then I would mount it over in the middle or the passenger side. Travis and I could not get the harness to reach the trans tunnel no matter what we did.

If you can't tell by the colour, the 3-plug harness or my sig, it IS an NB (a 2002).
