    My dad bought one and a timing retard for his spray setup. We stashed them under the passenger seat. Or maybe it was the timing retard and something else. Anyway they are under the passenger seat in the little dip.

    Seen a lot of them under the hood. there is plenty of room under the intake on the pass side. If you have a stereo with an amp you like the sound of then try too keep it as far away from the amps power wires or the radio or it makes a really nice audible-tachometer...

    That shelf he made is pretty cool but again if you have a stereo you listen too mounting it there will probably inject noise into the stereo. I have troubleshot stereo systems for HOURS before trying to get around it because the owner didn't want to move to have no success. There is a lot of room in the fenders to mount/hide stuff.

    i really like the shelf idea. ill make sure to wrap the wires together to prevent rfi noise.

    Why tin foil of course. Any smart person knows that..
    If it's good enough to keep the government from reading your mind or aliens taking over your body. You know it will block radio signals. .[​IMG]

    you dont even need to wrap them with anything. just twist them all together

    I think your confusing the noise rejecting properties of a twisted rca cable and our ignitions.
