    Should be fine there, but X2 on keeing it out of water. Don't ever mount them on the engine if you can help it! The vibrations and harmonics will kill it quick!

    I know my picture is showing you a fuel filter, but I mounted my MSD box to the same piece of aluminum just on the other side of the pump.

    When I die I want to go nice and peaceful in my sleep like Grandpa did, not screaming like the other passengers in His car.

    haha actually it did! we did the fast oil change etc etc and the motor would fire up but it was kinda weird, anything other than idle would stumble and die. At first I thought the box had actually survived but when we put a 2nd box on it ran fine so....

    That's funny. I had 2 brand new boxes fail on me...the one that's in the boat now is a used loaner that's been sunk at least once...its been reliable so far. Maybe I'll dump the other 2 in a bucket of water and see if they start working again. LOL

    I mounted mine as high as I could (which isnt very high on my boat) on the transom under the deck so it's out of the splash zone and well protected. Been like that for probably 7 years with no issues.
