I have been under my 67 dash for a few hours looking for a good ECM/PCM location.It a 99-04 style ECM/PCM and the only spot I can find is drivers side between the column and the kick panel.It needs to be something that the ECM/PCM can be dropped down out of the way easily for fuse box access and to tighten the red/blue connectors.I am using a radio and it will not fit above the glove box on a second gen so those areas are out for me.The drivers side location should not interfere with A/c if I decide later to install it.Harness fits nicely behind the cluster but there does not seem to be any simple places to mount a bracket.Any ideas? Pictures? Thanks

I mounted mine to the left of the column to the bottom "lip" of the dash. Right in front of the fuse box. Not real great for access to the fuse box but two bolts and the computer just comes down. Reinforced the bottom of the dash lip with 1/4" plate so I had something to drill and tap. Made a bracket that attaches to the computer fins. Just drilled a couple of holes to mount.
You can just see the bottom of the tin cover on the computer if you open the door and really look.
Don't have pics. Take a peek at Chevy High Performance mag August 2012 issue. That's my car on the cover. The interior pic you can't see the computer but it's tucked up right next to the vent knob.
Not sure what motor your using the ECM for but I would imagine it's for an LS. I have a stock LS1 ECM mount cradle if you're interested. Once you mount it it makes it easy to slide it in and out if you have to.
