noob with haltech

Hello everyone,
Have some real noob questions, so please don't fire back to harshly if my questions are extremely noob, lol! I have an 84 gsl-se with an S5 intake. I purchased a Sprint RE platinum along with a custom engine/emissions/ignition harness many years ago but was unable to install it due to some life challenges. This past weekend I was able to remove the stock ECU and engine harness. I laid out the new harness to familiarize myself with it a bit. Of course there are many things that are self-explanatory like installing the new sensors and plugging them in. But there are some things, quite frankly, that are just Greek to me. I'm a decent mechanic but terrible at electrical things and figuring out things of that nature. So here are my noob questions:

1. First is where are you guys mounting the ECU? Mounting it where the old ECU was (under the panel of passenger side carpet) is logical but I've read of people mounting it in the glove box.
2. Since I do not have an air pump or ACV, do I need any of these sensors----------Vacuum switch, switching solenoid valve, relief solenoid valve control, vacuum control solenoid valve, pressure regulator control valve, vent solenoid valve?
3. Fast Idle (Thermowax)......can I remove this from TB?
4. Intake Air Temp I put this in the Dynamic Changer or in the in the intake tube between TB and Air filter?
5. The Haltech manual says that this ECU cannot control the ignition coils and that a separate ignition control system/module is needed. I didn't know this. Since I wanted to try the IGN-1A coils, would I still need a separate controller to work with the Sprint?

Ok, that's enough for now, lol! I'll hit you all up for some more noob questions I'm sure.
