Down near your where your airbox once was, seeing as though its gone and a pod now lives there, that should have cleared up some room.
I mounted mine near the passenger side strut tower, only problem is it can get quite exposed to moisture up there so i think i'll be moving it if i change my airbox set-up.

not a good spot on a hot day the expoy inside will melt and fry your computer as the tfi spout signal is connected to your tps return wire and anything over 5v will fry your computer

need away from direct heat source like exhaust and such its in the manual that came with the 6al box
maybe try here as its closer to the coil and tap into the abs power supply plug as yours will fail from heat were it is

I ran with MSD gear, namely dizzy #8456, HVCII coil #8253, Digital 6 ignition #6520 & TFI harness adapter & ford factory tacho adapter. Ran great!

Have changed things & now running individual coils / cam sensor & crank sensor & Motec M800.

The MSD stuff is up for grabs.

Its been there for 2 years now........... its a 6T sitting on rubber mounts, with HPC coated extractors, there is as cool as anywhere under there, especially with holes in the bonnet.

It would have to get pretty close if not directly in contact with the exhaust to melt the internal epoxy filling and enamel anyhow. Where it is there would be ok. If wiring looms can survive in proximity to exhaust the module can. It's cool how you've managed to fit the module behind the BA airbox though XTT909.
