Re: how to: battery swap

Why the battery shift?.

Is it in the way of some mods on the original side.

Re: how to: battery swap

yes if u have seen under the hood you will notice the air filter for the turbo is on the other side of the engine bay so by swapping the battery over to the other side you can then pipe the air filter striaght off the front of the turbo geiving it much colder air in and as well shortn the path the air has to flow to get to the turbo by a meter or so.
as well as the pod filter to the turbo you can then pipe the cooler piping stright into the standard plenium chamber increasing boost and air flow. ill post so dyno inprovements of this work as soon as im back from hols and have had it dyno'd

Ahh I see your reasons now.

Would be interesting how much of an improvement could be gained simply from doing that.

Are you going to fit a box around the pod filter or leave it open.?

I have seen some guys take out their headlight to get the cold air in when they take it down the strip.Wondering how hard it is to take out the BA headlight

Re: how to: battery swap

yes i am going to build a box around the pod, also im going to remove the battery plate that the old bettery sat on and run a cold air pipe from the front bar up to the pod so that its getting forced cold air. but in saying that where it sits now everytime i finish driving it some where i have been checking to see how cold the pod is and the how cold the air pipe is and they have both been pretty cold so its already getting cold air as it is which is great! bring on the pipes feed the pod direct cold air!!!
