If it is in there check also on the drivers side of the engine block. Often , on new models the ECU is mounted behind the fuel filter housing.
Another way to find the ECU is following the wiring that are coming from the fuse box, on one way they go toward the device, on the other they go to the car computer

Here is the ECU:

    Hi I am back.

    I checked this out. The Sprinter is not really a Dodge van, it is a Mercedes model rebadged by Dodge, that the reason why location of parts are dillerent.

    On mercedes vans the engine control module is placed on top of the engine in V8 engines, while on
    the V6 it should be on the left, just in front of the fire wall.
    It is quite a big square shaped object, you should find it.
