you have to remove the whole metal bracket that the computer is bolted to, 2 bolts I think by the clutch pedal, it is a PITA but thats the only way to do it...

The 10mm bolt in the front (which you got). Then the 2 7mm bolts on the inside of the truck. Then press the clutch in with 1 hand and pull the pcm out with the other. That's how i did it.

hey man if you want it to be easier to remove next time then trim off the dr. side plastic lip on the front of the plastic black bracket that holds the pcm to the firewall. thats what i did and now i can just unbolt the 3 bolts and then pull it towards the pass. side and out it comes. way easier.

just wat i did so i thought i would shed some light.
b/c trust me you will have to take it out again sometime. to reflash it for when you want more power
