ideally want to relocate to the boot/back seat area.

the set up i want to run (large air filter) will be going in the battery area so i can run a cold air feed from the passenger side fog lamp. in terms of moving it, is it just a case of longer cables?

anything i'm missing?

thanks, Ben

Bascially longer cables yes. But some nice chunky ones too.

And also make sure earth down properly. Maybe even more than once.

Use a multimetre to make sure it's working as it was from its original location, if not better.
