As most of us know, the Gen 2 control module on the 87 & 88 are located in the drivers side wheel well.. For those of us that upgraded from Gen 1 to Gen 2 don't have the luxury of a place to stash this module.. My question is, for those that did a gen 1 to gen 2 swap, where did you place your module? I just put mine under the drivers headlamp, which in hind site was a bad move as I now know that the module is not water tight, and water is not the modules friend.
Any ideas would be helpful...

I put mine on the front trunk area bulkhead, in front/below the brake master cylinder assembly.

W/o cutting wires etc.... I think Wires should reach inside front "trunk" area.
Just make sure wires don't rub any hole.

Is a bit of pain but can use OE location.

The module and Metric Pack connectors are water resistant not water proof.
Many things won't last long when soaked.

I put mine in the left headlight bucket after applying a liberal amount of silicon sealant to the area of the connectors. Car has only been driven in the rain once-Carlisle last year- and I've had no issues with the lights with the module in this location.
