It should be on the inner fender on the drivers side. You will have to remove the inner fender liner to get it. Just upgraded mine in my F350 last weekend.

I dont recall seeing it anywhere on any of our ambulances so I assume it is on the inner fender. I'll make a call and find out. What year van?

It's not my post but I bought Beans Performance Diesel's IDM upgrade. It's reprogramed to send 140v to your injectors instead of the 110-120v as the stock IDM does. I have a faster start and alot more throttle response. It is said to increase you 15-30 hp. It is on sale for $100 with a $400 core return. I am thrilled with mine.
