Battery Relocation

Hey Peeps

How many of you guys have gone through with relocating the battery to the trunk? Did you go with just a basic mount or a full box in the trunk? I'm not looking to go forced induction, just thinking of relocating it for better weight distribution. I'd like to keep it clean so I'm trying to get some ideas on the best way to go about it.

If you're using the stock battery (i.e. not sealed) you'll want a full box because you don't want the battery to vent into the cabin. Another thing to consider is the weight distribution: If you do a lot of drag racing keep in mind that you want as much weight as possible focused over the front wheels.

I would recommend going with a gel cell if your going to put it in the trunk. Just my .02.
