I used to have it clamped to side of the rear subframe, but wrangling it 
into that position apparently overstressed the hoses, and I had it blow 
off in T2 at Thunderhill, with unpleasant results.

I have the replacement clamped crosswise to the thin metal bracket where 
the rubber heat shield normally attaches.  I can upload pictures if it 
would help clarify where I mean.
