E3D and MEC superbox mounting

I know several people have used the MEC superbox on the E3D. What are the various ways that people have mounted this setup? It looks like it could be mounted through the firewall similar to how the GD-600 is mounted, but I'm not sure if this is optimal.

Also, on the E3D is the motor mounted to anything besides the gearbox?

On mine, the motor is only bolted to the gearbox, and the gearbox is bolted to the firewall. Boy I hope that is correct because its about to make its first flight.

Mine will be mounted similarly to the GD-600. It will just need to have a little carving in the "cowl" to reach the top of the three screws.

Will be able to swap motors by just removing the two bolts that hold it to the gearbox. First Endo, then Turbo 10, then Mega 22/20/3.
