    Mostly, yes.. It’s hard to fit a bigger intake ( 4” ) with a full size battery at the same time. I live in Indiana so I can’t have a small battery. Also it will possibly give me an option for where to mount my methanol tank if I can make it fit. If not no biggie but thought it might fir there.

    Yeah the smaller battery doesn’t have enough CCA (cold cranking amps)

    Not trying to hijack, just curious if small battery can affect the electric output of of the car when running? Thinking bout using battry (etx20) but with all the electronics, aux fuel pump, aux controller some etc controller, kinda makes me think alternator won't keep up,

    My genpu used to struggle when I'm trying to turn since it uses electronic ps with my etx30 sized battery hence I moved back to 51r
