      Hi all,

      I have a 2.0T Quattro and I am pondering relocating the battery to the trunk since the quattro's have the empty battery compartment in the trunk.

      Would anyone know what the part numbers are for changing the engine compartment terminals to that of the 3.2L ones as well as including any charging posts etc as well as mounting parts for the trunk.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Ok I will post it up in a bit.

      All facelifted 2.0TQ's have the same body/frame as the 3.2's.

      Actually I don't believe it would be that much work. The hardest part being running the 2 gauge cable from the engine bay through the firewall and under the carpet all the way to the back. I believe the battery tray can be reused but I believe the battery has to be different.

      You'll need a vented battery.
