I think it is a great idea to shock mount in between the ecu's- - however just using 4 small squares of foam in the corners will shock mount and allow air to flow. I think I'll try that once my CZ unit comes in in the next few weeks.
If you look critically at the stock "cooling system" in the PCM box, I think you will agree "cooling" is not an applicable description. They rely on air to air heat transmission through plastic. Plastic is not known as a great conductor of heat.
In our experience the PCM gets "warm", not hot. I doubt there will be a problem.
Omicron, what kind of donut did you use? I am thinking of using whole wheat since is is denser than a traditional flour unit. I also believe the center hole will provide the necessary airflow, and Canzoomer should update his install directions to include this mod.
Er, I seem to recall my unit already having some small rubber feet that should cushion shock and allow air in between the boxes. But it's home on my dining room table at the moment (not re Krispy Kreme). Do I recall right or am I Just Whistling Dixie?

You are right there are rubber feet.
