    DIS4 and tach adapeter issue solved. Thank you amplifier bracket...

    Now I just need to figure out the best way to get the wires out into the engine bay. Don't want to drill another hole in the firewall, but that may be what has to happen. Otherwise I thought about going out through the side to the fender and back in where the ABS sensor routes.

    Yes, you can have both. Air bags are disabled during track days and the harnesses are unbolted/not used during street use.

    Wideband goes in front of the shifter. DIS4 doesnt fit behind the radio area.

    Center console all the way to the dash is a nice place to hide things

    Could you mount it under the center arm console?

    Yes for non-track use.

    I'd like to keep the airbags for daily driving and cruising purposes.

    what if you removed the passenger airbag and mounted the stuff in that area? then it wouldnt be kicked at all, and probably go through the same location in the firewall

    Trunk hinges back in (royal PITA installing those 10mm nuts with the rear glass still installed). Also managed to sneak the ECM back in too.

    I've put together the schematic work for installing the AutoMeter tach module (needed to drive my fuel pump controller) as well as the MSD DIS4 box. Just need to find a good place to mount the dang things. I'm thinking the foot well of the passenger side up as close as I can get it to the blower motor. Not ideal, but that's all I got. Might make a bracket to support it under the blower motor as opposed to bolting it to the fire wall.
