:) I have a couple of questions.

Will you share the part numbers you used? Especially the EPS unit?

After mounting it sticks forward into the toolbox area or the battery area? (There's not a good angle of that in the pictures)

Did you think about having it stick out towards the rear (the shifter might be in the way but I think your knees would be far enough away?) or towards the side? I understand you tried to hide it under the hood but just wondered what else you considered?

Positioning it straight forward is a way of doing a minimum of hacking up the body work as I saw it. Yes, if you faced it backward you would hit the shifter. The motor could be angled to the left a bit but gains are sort of minimal. Facing it to the right hits the oil gauge. This unit and controller was out of a 2004 through 2009 Toyota Prius. As I mentioned earlier this unit is unnecessarily beefy for this application and in retrospect I should have kept looking for a smaller (easier to fit) unit with "failsafe" mode but again these big units seem to be reasonably priced and plentiful. Be advised that the most important thing is to fabricate the unit to box adapter perfectly line centered to avoid a potentially destructive wobble.
