Data systems in a V6 Cup R

I'm going to install an Aim EVO 5 in my Exige V6 Cup R.
Any recommendations on where to put it, where I can easily get to it and that is is dry and not subject to too much heat?

Thanks in advance,
Jimmy

Jimmy,

@Jack is the expert on these cars. Drop him a PM and I'm sure he will give you his saga advice.

Jimmy, just go with the AiM MXS.....you get the data logging you want and a dash/instrument cluster displaying useful info. And.... you can actually read the MXS while on track vs the standard Lotus dash which is useless, IMHO.

Nice install. I have the evo out of my F430 CH. I ended up mounting in on the back firewall.
