    Kim I think that is the one I have, I did the bat in the trunk did it a bit different though, I have 2 ga from the bat to a separate lug in the engine comp then basically using the stock relays etc, I did run a new 10ga to the stock wiring, I did it this way since most of my 'other: power draw is in the trunk, fuel pump, vac pump, works great for me so far.

    Kim I just looked up that alt mine is a 90A squareback style but the principle is the same except hookup itself.
