Default MSPNP ECU Loaction on 1.8?

I am getting ready to buy a MSPNP2 for my miata in preparation for the turbo. And as a noob I was wondering where people are putting the ecu on a 1.8? I want to put it where the stock ECU is behind the passenger seat but I'm not sure if it is a good idea to run that vacuum line all the way back there and where exactly I would hide it so it doesn't get pinched or anything. Just wondering where others are placing there ECU thanks!

Yea I tried many times but I couldn't find anything, maybe I'm just missing some key words or something. Any ideas or links to other posts?

there's nothing wrong with running vacuum line back there, other than it's a lot of vacuum line you must source.

We include it with the ECU.

Or you can install a remote (external) MAP sensor at the engine. That has the side benefit of removing transfer delay, though I doubt that you'll notice the difference.

you wouldn't want to mount the unit any other place. that place is awesome.
only when you have to install on an nb do you appreciate how great it is to have the ecu behind pass seat

Thank you to everyone that posted! I plan on running it behind the passenger seat now for sure. I should be able to find the line no problem (but as mentioned its included ��). Thanks again for the help!
