Where to mount the computers in MK1 16V Conversion

I am trying to mount the 2 computers in the rain tray area and route the thick cable into the engine bay. There is a hole in the bottom of the drip tray area allready but intended for just drainige I think because there used to be a rubber collapsable grommet there. It points down very near the corner (strut) and has a match on the otherside. (passenger) It looks like there is a round knock-out stamped in the sheet metal facing forward allready that is very similar to the one in the 16v car. Is this supposed to be a hint for us converters? How about a hint or two on the best places to mount these 2 computer boxes. Looks pretty cramped in there. I am surfing for a picture, but most engine pics are from the front with a poor view of this area. A pic would be worth 1000 words on this.
Thanks for any advice here.

Either enlargen the existing one slightly, and or drill another. Don't use the drain holes. you'll drown your harness/ECU,ruin your carpets and fusebox. drill a hole in a location so that the harness is not bending against it's normal curve. You want the ECU on the driver's side.
