From what I've read and a few pictures I've seen, the UUAPU is in the left rear corner of the hull. The only really visable external change is the deletion of the fuel filler cap on the left rear corner of the engine deck. The UUAPU was put in place of a fuel tank, thus the change. I can't guarantee that's all, but that's all I've found so far.

Having never dealt with the SEP, I had to look up the information in the parts manual. There is an exhaust duct that looks similar to the one a household clothes dryer has on the outside of your house. It is located between the left taillight guard and the left hull lifting ring.

Sabot,
Turrettoad13's vent would seem to be the same vent we were talking about, on the right rear corner behind the sponson box.
