    I have read through umpteen different write-ups on engine swaps. Seen hundreds of pictures. Read through hundreds of threads on 10 different forums, but for the life of me I can't seem to find out where the battery is. I have a K20a engine that is going into my '02 Civic EX. From the pictures I have seen the battery is no longer in the stock location because of interference with the accessory belt drive system. Can anybody shed some light on where the battery is located after the swap?

    Get an optima (sealed) and relocate it to the rear of the car. (trunk/hatch) Or, some move it into the front bumper where the factory intake silencing chamber goes but I would strongly advise against that. Some put it in the passenger floor. Just find a spot that is safe and secure. If you can relocate it safely in the engine bay, more power to you.
