just have to reroute all the cables...

you'll need a vent tube to the outside to vent the batteries gases, and it will need to be in an approved enclosure with proper grounding/

you might try a place like jegs.com or some other muscle car place, they often sell battery enclosures for drag cars, etc.

If you buy it from an online store, it will be approved (that is, a reputable store)

I think it needs to be DOT (dept. of trans.) approved, but I could be wrong.
