      I think PSU has a MKV thread about a clean engine bay, that might help a little bit. I also think the MKIV forum has a cleaning up your engine bay thread. Check Jegs or Summit for a Battery relocation kit to install battery in the trunk. I thought I saw someone who went mega small battery and built brackets for the battery under the frame rail. From the little, very little, I've read it seems like people will buy a second wire harness and wire by wire extend each wire in order to run a longer path. It is a nice clean look. Good luck with your search.

      Have seen some Vr6 bays that were so clean, made the motor look tiny in the bay.

      I too am staring to dig it...

      You can always start with a SAI delete. Keep in mind once you start to clean up the bay then you'll want to polish or paint everything.
