There are mounts for it (3 of) on the top RHS of the pedal box - I don't think pre EF/EL/XH pedalboxes have that provision. 2 mounting bolts face horizontal, other one is vertical. The label on the unit has a 'forwards' arrow, so plug side is on the right, label is underneath. Don't forget to also mount the firewall crash sensor to the right of the heaterbox.
It's important you mount these items correctly, and not just cable tie them as they won't work correctly, and there are fault codes for incorrect mounting.
You might also want to extend the 2 wire PAB loom with the resistor over to the glovebox, just in case you want to install a PAB later on. I'm assuming your using a pre EFII/EL loom, and have an EF/EL dash.

On my NC series yes, a full conversion including the Airbags. The only thing i am not changing is the seats becuase i already folked out $$$ on leather before i decided on the conversion

I kinda wish i never started it now, the two are much more different then what i initally thought... very expensive task, especially sourcing ALL the proper NL V8 stuff including NL V8 looms, NL ECU, NL Cluster, BEM etc etc :(

luckey i got my LTD (the one in my gallery) to keep me sane :lol:

oh and mitch, that pic is perfect! and watch out for that Tim, he is a wierd one :wink:
