the car is going to be a daily driver and i also have in intense FWI which is routed through the hole behind the headlight. the pcm is mounted there in the supplied tray that came with the intake. i think if i just make a custom bracket for the battery it can easliy be mounted in the same place as on "bad ssei". i think also that optima red top is a little smaller in dimensions than our stock acdelco battery. i'm not really looking to reduce a whole lotta weight from the car, just figured that extra 40 or 50 lbs would help me out with traction, even if it'* just a little. i'm not an experiened drag racer by no means but i'm pretty sure that luanching this car could be a challange at first

Badsissy (as we affectionately call it) used a race battery that is half the dimension and a third the weight. Another fast 00 I know has the battery in the stock location. BTW what valves are in your heads?

rogue, i'm not sure what make they are, but i think we had this chat before about zzp using longer than stock valves on their heads. i spoke with tim from zzp and he said the reason for the longer valves was to correct valvetrain geometry, with the xp cam and stock pushrods (705'*) they supply custom 1050 collars to go with the rockers (comp cams 1.6 pro mags) and they use no pedastals. my engine builder was concerned that the valves may come into contact with the pistons due to the longer valves and the cam, but we turned it over by hand on the stand and all clearances seem to be okay

My concern was with the recent faliure of Si valves lately.

Based on specs it looks like your car is going to rip asphalt
