Don't do it, there's no benefit from it other than making space in the engine compartment. The electrical signal is weakened by the relocation, added cost of purchasing a container and tie down to seal it from the cabin, and the weight shift isn't exactly desirable in a ff car.
Yeah, don't get me wrong, I'm not about to do it. Still on 80K stock suspension for starters Just curious if anyone else went to the trouble. LW battery is a much more realistic and short-term option for me.
Yep, that's exactly what I'm planning on getting. I like the 11lb battery but realistically, I'll probably end up with the 15lb battery since I have one of those two-way alarms and occassionally drive the car out in the winter. Considering my duralast gold battery is 33.5lbs, that's gonna be some nice weight savings on the driver side of the car.
It moves a 28lb battery from the left ft to the right rear. The hardest part was finding a safe route for the power cable. As for is it worth it? I think so, the battery is a heat sorce and it blocks out side air from comming into the under hood area. you also get to remove the battery tray........ :thumbsup:
