Hi, I did a search, but came up with nothing. What are you doing about your battery locations? I was looking to get a kit to locate it somewhere other than what the book has.

There are a variety of options.
FFMETAL has a kit which allows you to place it in the trunk under the trunk aluminum.
Advantage of trunk location is weight over the rear wheels. Helps with traction
Breeze has a kit which allows you to place it over the passenger foot box. Advantage much shorter cables.
In short it's your car. Others have done as above more cost effective.

I build my own box to put it under the trunk floor, makes for a clean installation and saved some money making my own!

Some mount them on the X frame in front of the engine. Here's a pic of mine under the aluminum. This is IRS, if you use the straight axel, it's get mounted just to the left of the pumkin. They all have their advantages/disadvantages.

I made a box to mount mine in front of the engine. One of the vendors makes one. Breeze I think.

FFMetal...very well engineered. Does not take up any trunk space.
