      Got my new battery today, just got to get my cabling. What size is kosher for boot mounted batteries? I'm thinking 2 gauge or 0 gauge. I am thinking i will use a fusible link up in the bay just in case of a collision do I dont have a hot wire exposed... 250 amp fuse? 0 gauge wire? Anyone have suggestions or advice.please post pics of your battery relocation

      Keep the oe battery handy, charged and ready for winter. When its cold relocated batteries that have been moved to a unwarm area drain like a motherf*cker, and never wants to crank over the starter. Those down south that have the relocation dont have to worry about it, and I would recommend one of those thermal covers to help a little bit.

      When I had my dsm I brought the battery into work with me every day, and inside my house every day, because my odyssey would die in a 7 hour shift. So thats a winter option as well just use quick release terminals

      0 gauge, and a 250 is probably overkill

      Decided against relocation...i will have plenty of space for charge piping...so I just ran an agm battery with modified battery platform...its not perfect, but its awesome cranks so fast...I side mounted the battery.and used the oddyssey lugs for the oem terminals.now I have to tuck MORE?! wiring!!!
      Also ran the vacuum line under the intake, then through the far left mani hole...until I have time to tuck the little sensor this will work

      my battery is on my trunk... but i have a red top optima...

      granted, i am on the south... but on winter, where i live, it can get as cold as 20s... the coldest startup to date was at 25... and it was up with no issues.

      and on florida, its actually GOOD to relocate the battery... with the HOT summers, the bay gets extra warm, and battery lasts less...

      in matters of Batteries and tires, florida is considered "hazard"

      Exactly. I remember the very first time my car wouldnt crank over, I know it was negative temps, but I also used a real small odyssey battery. If you are fine with a battery box get a optima or use the oem battery and you may be fine, but for me Im gonna have to hollow out some of the foam under the drop floor and mount it out of sight, so odyssey it is again
      Still working on the dual air tank setup, but only one is for air

      Shhh Im trying to figure out the best way to do it and keep the spare. I may have to cut out the center of the spare well and drop a skinny down there, or just use one 12 gallon tank! Im not going to make it known untill it is done, So someone cant beat me to it, as its never been done.... As far as I know

      So today I was able to get into the drivers side wiring and tucked it away...it's pretty clean now...was able to re route the harness that the maf is connected to around and behind the master cylinder and tucked the main harness connection under the front rail.
      Here are a few pics...poor quality because I just shot them outside in the dark...with my cell...so um?? Sorry bout that

      Ok so tucked the evap under the manifold... There is a small bracket under there that if you take the little vacuum hose out of it's little plastic ring, you can then snap the sensor onto the top and it'll be in near oem position...pics?

      You bet..night time again though sorry
      Hope this makes sense...

      Nice. Did you spray it still on the car or pull the motor and spray it, or take it off the motor and spray it? lol
