I run an MSD boost-control module and have it mounted to the floor under the driver's seat.

first... WHICH ignition control box ?

if using a Stock kind Ignition box, there is a bracket to be attached on rear rail of the block ( if BB )

71 B body gets plenty of room on fender behind the headlights thought!

Oh, just noticed is a Rev-N-Nator!

I would have thought putting the box there would be too close to a heat source, no?

RS -- I have always had my ECU (chrome Chrysler box) relocated under the dash.. actually just above the pedals... out-of-sight... just had to extend and splice the wires from the control box. Also, by getting out of the engine bay, not only does it appear stock, but the ECU stays cooler as is needed. I've had it this way since about 1978 on my car (Challenger). There are circular grommeted holes for the wires under the master brake firewall assembly that I've passed the wires through. The ECU is simply screwed to the inside firewall above the brake pedal area... out-of-sight.

Mitch,
Plan B was to go under the dash. You might not know but the Revinator has a button on the box to set the RPM limit. Is it easier to climb under dash and push the button or pop 3 screws under the hood? Guess it depends on your age and flexibility. I'm older (59) and not as flexible so under hood it is.

RS -- As for the Rev-Limiter feature, set-it and forget it after you determine the max RPM limit. I have an adjustable Mallory RPM tach that I use for setting the limits.

I'm fortunate to still be flexible.. at 64.. and stay fit best as possible...
