Location of TAD, TAB, and EVR on 1st gen lightning?

Hey guys. more questions for the 1st gen lightning guys. On my F-150 i have too much stuff back around the rear driver side valve cover now to be able to mount my coil, TAB, TAD, and EVR to it. So now i want to change it over to how the lightnings mount. i know the lightning coils mount up on the front of the engine, but where does the bracket bolt to??? Also where can i get a lightning coil bracket? i have searched all over the place and can't find a bracket for it. Does the solenoids mount with the coil like the regular F-150's or somewhere else? If they mount somewhere else does anyone know where to get that bracket as well??? thanks guys.

Honestly, this is the last place I'd recommend for a coil relocation. On the fender well, behind the battery would be a good spot. You just need to extend the primary wires and use a long coil wire.

I will take your word for it. Do you mind if i ask why it's a bad spot? i assume it's a PITA to work on in that spot.

Also do the lightnings use a vacuum tree of some sort since they have the GT40 intakes? i have a typhoon on my F-150 now and trying to figure in my head how i'm going to run the vacuum lines. i thought i'd get a tree from a diesel b/c they have a tree on the driver side fender well with like 6 ports on it i think. No idea on the TAB, TAD, and EVR??? i guess i can move those to the fender as well with the coil

The coil, on a GEN 1, is mounted to a bracket that attaches to the water pump. It puts the coil downstream of the radiator and it tends to soak up a good bit of heat.

The GEN 1's utilize a vacuum tree that is mounted on the back side of the upper intake; on the flange that the EGR spacer attaches to, which is where the rest of the components are located as well.
