    never done it in an f body, but helped a buddy do it in an rx-7... was pretty simple... we just ran some 4 gauge power wire from the new battery location to the power block that used to attach to the battery. grounded the battery right at the battery to a seatbelt mount .

    --if i wanted that space under the hood i would mount it on the driver side where there is the cubby hole in the "trunk".. i would then find a way to mount the battery... probly drill holes... then jb weld nuts underneath... and once installed i would then cover the bottom where the holes are with some sort of silicone.. but you should be able to get to the that area underneath pretty easy... if i remember right.. and you have the rear seatbelt mounts to ground to... i did for my stereo... works wonderfully...

    but curious what do you need the room under the hood for??

    I haven't done it myself, but I have seen some done. And like pet_monk suggests, they were mounted in the open ledge on the left rear (the "cubby hole"). Besides freeing up room under your hood, it will give you a little better front-to-rear weight balance.

    Just got to Germany so my left foot is has been to the floor since I got here so my front end it constantly bout an inch or two higher... i am passing everything except the esso (gas station where i can get gas for 2.90 per gal instead of 10.00 per gal) and i have two tens and huge amp in the rear. so i don't really have room to move the battery....

    That is good enough reason for me, we used monster cable 4 gauge power wire, because it was available, easy to work with and could handle the current he was running. Damn rotary takes quite a bit to turn over, huge starter for how small the engine is... weighs bout as much as the ls1. Just all in a small space.
