    I did a search, and couldn't find anything, so I was wondering if anyone on here has done a battery relocation on their CRX and if so could provide some info. I was planning on using the Moroso box and what not, so any info will help.

    Just wondering things like where you mounted your box, if I need a box(I've heard things about the battery fumes?) what size wire should be used, where you ran your wires through the fire wall and if it is a good idea to relocate or if it is unneccessary. My first post was a little incomplete, I typed it while rushing to get to my 2nd hour.

    its pretty simple.get a really thick gauge wire about 20 ft"you cut off the extra"
    and a black wire same gauge about 4 ft"ground. there is a little grommet up above the ecu.It is a little black plug you can push wire through it or completely remove it.hook up the wire in the old locations and you done with the wires.i dont have a flasy metal box in my hatch i got a cheap plastic box and bolted it to the rear end right above were the spare tire would go? but i got a question why would you relocate if you do not need it?

    ya if you have an intake on a CRX its probably a good idea to re-locate it, i know it its on the + side of the battery, it accually put a pin-hole in my intake. i had to put a very small piece of tape over it. the engine bay looks a little bit cleaner also without the battery.
