ecm and fuse block mounting ideas

hey guys im trying to find a good spot for my ecu and psi fuse block

Re: ecm and fuse block mounting ideas

Think carefully about access after install.

My 1st Protour build I used PSI. Put the fuse box between the console and firewall out of site. Put the ECM behind the dash. A lot of work to get it done.

Down side. Extremely difficult to access the fuse box and had to take dash 1/2 way apart to get to the ECM. Major PIA

Every car after. ECM on the firewall or passenger inner fender and fuse box in battery tray location and the battery to the trunk.

Re: ecm and fuse block mounting ideas

i was thinking of putting ecm in engine bay but it seems the psi harness is configured for interior installation

Re: ecm and fuse block mounting ideas

Yes. It is. But room is very limited especially if you have AC.

I help a friend do a drop down hinged panel under the glove box. He had a custom dash that eliminated the glove box.

Re: ecm and fuse block mounting ideas

I have mounted the ECM and relays etc to the passenger side toe board and covered it with a false floor panel. PSI harnesses are tough to work with because they are not weatherproof (fuse block especially) and they are too short.

This what I did but it's a lot different parts than what you're using.

Distribution block bracket fabricated and installed on passenger side.
ECM bracket fabricated and installed on driver's side.
