Wiring diagram

Anyone have a wiring diagram for battery relocation? Does anyone know of inexpensive way to do without buying a 150 doller kit?...
Just asking .....

Where did you find that?
I am curious as to why they used 2, 135 Amp circuit breakers and why they thought it necessary to run 2 power cables back up to the engine compartment.


I would add some braided ground cable and run that all the way back to the engine compartment too, so you can be sure to get adequate grounds to your engine and electronics. Just grounding to the car frame or body puts a lot of unreliable metal and resistance into your ground circuit and can cause problems.


I chose the braided ground cable because you can open the braid and secure it with a SS screws and washers to the frame and body along the way which increases the ground contact of them. I also recommend using a smaller piece of grounding braid and running it from the larger braid directly to your ECU to ensure it has adequate grounding.

If you can, I will check into why they did it that way, then I will redo the drawing to how I think it should be done.

Re: Wiring diagram

I found it.

I'm going to work on a diagram of how I intend to do the swap on my 86 GT.
If you want you can wait to see it or go with whatever you think will work for you.

I have some differing ideas than what I have found and I want to work out a way to keep from spiking the electrical system if/when the system shutdown switch is activated for testing purposes.

Re: Wiring diagram

Ok, after some research here is what I intend to do. Note, that I may change my drawing/wiring, if I run across any information that will improve or disprove what I have come up with so far. I will try and remember to post up any changes on this forum.

I plan to use 1/0 power cable (Red) and 1/0 flat braided ground cable. The wire to the alternator will be an 8 gauge wire.
