Best battery relocation kit and directions for an EFI car NHRA Legal!

Looking for the most complete battery relocation kit to move the battery to the truck but also would like to have outside charging post, on/off switch and must be NHRA IHRA legal so that when in the off position the car will cut off and not run. Thanks for any links and information

Both the Moroso and Taylor remote battery kits are nice and have battery box venting to be legal.

The cable they give you sucks though.. 4 gauge wire just don't cut it.

The last Moroso kit I bought had 00 gauge wire in it. I don't know about the Taylor kits.

Pardon my ignorance… but why/what’s the purpose of an external cut-off switch?

Because a fuel injected car can still run upside down... A fuel pump can still run upside down or on its side.


Pretty much if **** happens and gas is getting pumped out of the tank to a place you don't want it to go then you would want a person on the outside to have the ability to turn it off short of climbing into the car.

It might be best to find a suitable battery box by itself and use welding cable for the cables because it is a heavier gauge and it has more strands in the wire making it easier to bend than the cable included in most kits.

I have never seen a kit that includes every thing including the master disconnect switch. Those are sold individually.

The main reasons are for safty. If you get in a wreck the first thing they want to do is disconnect the battery. Less of a chance a short could cause a fire. Also if you are at the starting line and something is leaking like gas, or oil they can cut your car off at the line.
