Of course the main reason for this is the relocation of weight from the rear of the car to the front. This will give better handling. By moving the 20 lbs of battery from the rear to the front, I get closer to the magical number of 50/50 weight distribution.
When i open the trunk up and there is no battery I am sure people, fiero people, will say "hey, wheres the battery?" This is good reason to do something. recognition it always nice...I have always been a showoff.
The Battery is now in the front of the car and working great. I went to several
stero shops and each wanted over $50 for enough cable to run power to the back of the car.
I then went to Eagle Hardware, where I spend a lot of time and money, and got a bunch
of 6 gauge cable, flexible aluminum conduit, and some conduit end fittings. I run four
lengths of the cable throught the conduit the routed the conduit from the tray in the
front to the old location of the battery in the rear of the car. I put replacement battery
connectors on each end of the new wires and bolted the old battery connectors to the
new connectors in the back. I connected the battery to the cables up front and
started the car.
I need to put a fuse up front to protect the car incase of grounding the positive wire and fire. Can't have another fiero burn up...you know they were prone to catch on fire...yeah all 400 in 84 who burn up because of abuse and neglect and .... rant rant rant
move 20 lb battery from rear right to front center of car.
