Default Get ready...

I wish there was a standard...but there isn't.

For my system, I cut a "clearance" hole in the sub panel and reinforced it with aluminum angle, as specified by Vans. In this hole I built a rack that will hold the Dual EFII ECUs, GTR20 com, GAD29, and GEA24, and PLX F/R Amp.

I am in the process of wiring the GEA24 now...there are LOTS of wires...

That sounds like an interesting approach. Do you have a pic? I am currently working on my panel/sub-panel.
