i wana move the battery to the trunk, its in the way of my cone filter idea, and i'd rahter have like 10lbs in the trunk insted of up front, that V8 is enough wieght up there. So what all do i need to get/do?
Optima, roughly $100. Educated guess 57/43 weight bias. Word of advise. Make sure the wire runing off the altanator to the positive post of the battery is at least 10 gaw wire. I had a charging problem with my 85 FW when I did that mod. If you buy the kit from Jegs you should be ok. I built mine from scratch so I had problems. Live and learn I guess.
Good to see you here
The Optima is a great battery for specific applications. Also remember that the Optima can be mounted in any orientation (sideways, on-end, etc.). Also, cable routing is CRITICAL for safety as well as durability.
