1. Cables
2. Place to mount battery
3. Something to hold it down with if you wanna be 'professio nal' about it
I know it is the I.A. thing to do but you are better than that.

I'm confused about the two cables that go to the positive terminal. The one that goes to the fusebox and the one on the motor. Do I just tap the one from the fusebox into the new cable?

Im sure it just hooks up to the old terminal clamp and runs to the new terminal location, but I have never installed one myself.

That looks like a pretty good kit.

Basically from what I understan d.

Take you old cable and cut the one that hits the fuse box and the battery and tie it into distribut ion outlet.

Get the power from the battery (rear of car) to the distribut ion block.

Just remember this factor.  If you are pulling a wire with power going through it, you should fuse it.

i found a thread on honda-tech that talks about it.

Looks to be in the back, side panel cut out to accommoda te. I could be wrong though.
