was wondering if i can get some input or advice on this! the 2 gauge positive wire i'm bringing from the back of the trunk, to the front of the car, from the inside of the car, out through a gromet on the driver side just a little above the clutch pedal into the engine bay.
how can i connect this wire? i've come up with three options but i still need advice on this: 1. put a connector on the end of it and bolt it on the existing pos terminal wire, 2. splice into the pos terminal wire, or 3. connect it to the pos side of the altenator?
the best option is to find a battery relocation specific cable. they have an terminal like connection on one end, so you just bolt up the connector under the hood, and use the connector on the other end to bolt to the battery terminal in your trunk. then just run your ground to the frame.
there is (was, at least) a guy on ebay who sells them off BMW's, he pulls them at junk yards. they are extremely big cables, and are built like i stated above. 30-40 ish bucks.

Built buy Me, ebay and zip ties.
Where the positive cable joins to the starter motor cable (you will see it) that is where you connect it up and run it to the back which ever way you see. make sure you insulate the wire you use (preferably 2 or 0 gauge, I used 0 gauge) otherwise if it rubs on metal and frays then grounds out your car will catch on fire with possibly you in it.
Why are you doing this btw, if it is for no reason, it is a bit of a pain of a job trying to tie the batt to the boot then having no room in the boot.
hey man if you are looking to do it connect to the exsting wires. you can do this with a piece from the home depo. go to the electric section and you will find them. they are pretty cheap as well. I had to use this when I put my multi connect thing to hook up all my stuff. my wire was not long enough to use. I did this and it works just fine! maybe a lil gheto but everything works just the same. I did tape, shrink wrap, and loom the thing to keep it ok.
I am a thief. Do not buy from me. Do not pity me... I am a lying thief.
thanks guys! n turk the reason i'm doing this is so when i turbo or supercharge, it will already be done since i have to do it anyways. saves alot of time. i already have it going the way i won't it, i just needed some advice on how to connect it. thats all. thanks abunch, all of u!... if you guys wanna c pics of what i'm doin just let me know.
ok no problem. i'll most like post some pics up 2morrow. the car is still a working progress. doing a auto to manual swap so it might be a little messy. the only thing i need is a tranny and than i can start putting things back together! i'm also replacing things thats broken or needs to be changed like window switches and so forth.
