I cant find anywhere else to conceal the damn thing, I figure just throw a t-shirt over it when I park my car so nobody sees it

you can mount it to the rear bulkhead beside the stock ecu... easy to access by just popping the passengers side seat forward.

no chance in hell I'd do that.... drop it behind the passenger seat, on in the front footwell, or behind the glove box....anywhere but there.

My car has never been towed, only loaded onto either a dolly or trailer for transport.

I use control arms as tie down points also, still have the baby teeth laying around just they look shitty on the car.

Or even in the glovebox... your gun will still fit. Provided it is a pistol (I think my dad's rifle would fit in the mazda3 glovebox).

I guess I'll mount it close to the factory ecu, and I guess I could paint the intercooler black.....(so much for the bling Factor), I guess It be better to draw attention away from my emanage so my **** does'nt get broken into....
