Makes sense. Less weight in front, more weight over tire = faster car!

It would take up half of the trunk. Still a good idea though.

Have you done this? If so what did you use to secure the battery. I would love to see some pics if anyone's done this mod.

You could purchase a kit like one from Summit or Jegs and put it into a vented box. You could also use a sealed Optima battery and leave it exposed, not the greateat idea though. Unless you have to move the battery I wouldn't recomend it because like someone said the trunk is small enough.

I saw it done on an 04 with a twin turbo set up. It looked really weird, but they also removed the spare tire and mounted a fuel cell in that area so the old tank was out and they had alot more trunk space.
