    Does anybody have pix or can tell me of how the routed there battery from the trunk to engine bay? I took my driver fender off last last night but it looks like it will be a pain to route that way.

    under the carpet on the passenger side, remove the plastic trim by the door jam and go on the inside of that. make sure nothing is going to pinch it (bolts, brackets). Anything that will pinch the cable will cause resistance, resistance causes heat, heat causes fire etc... go through the firewall and remember to use a rubber grommet otherwise the metal firewall will slowly eat through the cable and short out.

    Do you have to take off a fender to go through the firewall? :ohdamn: To answer your question no. Keep your fender on and route the wiring underneath the carpet like I did.

    No once you remover your battery look at where there is a wire harness coming through the fire wall and run it in there, then under the carpet along the side. And like said make sure to run it through the rubber grommet that is already there if you go that route.
