So has anyone else installed one in their car? I did today, outside, in 10 Degree whether, and it was a pain in the butt. In the end, I had to modify the heat shield on my Dr. Speed intake and cut the crap outa my battery tray. Has anyone else had to do the same thing? or found a better way?

I'm guessing that you got a BCI size 78; & not the stock BCI size of 75.

there was about a 1/2 inch overlap of the battery in the battery tray, not to mention the CAB was in the way. but, its in there now...oh well

yeah.. ummm undo battery terminals, unbolt battery holder, pull that out..., pull out the battery, and reverse...

shouldn't have any overlap. ah well u get a little more juice out of it.. I think..
