I would be a little concerned about the location of the piggyback ecu.

You may have overlooked it but if you got a hard enough knock from behind, the ecu may malfunction leaving you stranded. Attaching the ecu to the firewall would be a safer place for it in my opinion.

Well if i get a hard enough knock on the back ill probably be stranded anyway since the car will be fu*&ed lol The car will work anyway if i just unplug the piggyback.
I just cable tied it in place for now but ill work on a bracket to mount it to the firewall later because ill have to be switching it between this car and my track car and having to cable tie it in place every time isnt very professional...

Filler on filler off in my case
