Doesn't fall out or move? That leaves me with another problem, what the hell do I do with my ECU? Guess I better find some bungee cords... Thanks for all the help though, really appreciate it.

Most that I have seen have simply laid the PCM (ECU) on its side in a location near the FWI and zip tied down so it doesn't move. Intense (and I assume ZZP and others) sell a PCM relocation tray so that the PCM isn't laying open and exposed

I might be wrong here.. don't the fans blow hot air out down and probably over there?
My filter is in the front bumper so rains and winter are allready a problem, but I have the Spectre intake kit so I can just take off the bumper section and make it a short ram for crappy weather. So it can be removed or not? And how could it be done if possible?
dont remove it...relocate it...

you can see what i have done here


Can I ask a question? in the upper picture, where the thermostate housing is, and where the base of the ratchet rests on, there is a black plastic coverwith a wire going over it. It maybe for an EGR Valve or something. My question is.....I don't have that plastic cover on my 95 SSEi, it'* missing. Do I need it and what purpose is it for?

Thanks

I ended up bungeeing both the ECU and the canister in place, modifying the foam piece to shield heat to fit around the intake, and used the access as bumpers so to say so both the canister and the ECU are good and set. Response is slightly better due to the intake being shorter than my last intake but I don't know yet whether it upped performance overall, I'll find out probably this weekend.

We dont need it, it'* just a cover used on the 92-93 EGRs. It wouldn't fit anyways.
