I did consider getting a larger battery & modifying the battery tray to suit. Would also need to cut the air intage pipe (in my fitment) which I wasn't wild about. The intake ensures that air is taken from in front of the battery as opposed to behind it. I was concerned that it might suck in nasty/corrosive gasses although hydrogen is the only gas I can think of that would be given off. Might not be great to try to combust in a diesel engine
hey john.
maybe the hydrogen gas would act like nos? i wouldn't fancy cutting bits here and there...knowing my luck i would be posting on here for weeks about it lol
