    I was going to get an AM dry cell battery which should weight less.....but the "battery in the trunk" ideea sounds interesting....before I got my 04 gto I had a bmw 850 and that thing had 2 batteries located one on each side of the trunk....lol

    The only problem I see is wiring....and you have to make sure that the positive wire is isolated very good ...

    do some more research....

    relocation

    made alot of progress reloacted my battery to out back stock tray was looking bad from the factory battery, took me about 2-3 hrs cost me under 10 bucks i also put in my b&m in today its close and tight, i used the battery crap off a junk ambulance i dont know the gauge of the wire but its 2 1/2 to 3 times larger that the stock battery cable so im figuring either 1 or 0 prolly 0, even had enough flexible condiuit to do it with
