i have relocated the battery to the rear while my car is under construction for the whole mods list. anywayz, i got the box from summit racing cause it comes with everything and it ships in 3 days to ur house with ground shipping. the cables are 2 gauge for some weird reason so its gonna be a li hard to wrap them around anything, i got then running around the pass side floor under the mat scrwed and bolted in with some ghetto slyle screws. alwys remember to use the rubberized-undercoat to spray over the screws for a weatherproof seal.

voltage,electrical load and wire length ,3 important factors in determining wire size.

as wire length increases,...resistance increases,....this can cause the conductor to heat....excessive resistance can heat it to a point where the insulation could melt,...with dramatic results.....even where the battery is mounted usually,...cables are quite thick,.....
hope this sheds a little light....:smokin:
