The blue cell behind the aftercooler reservoir is a "cool can"... There's a coil inside the can that the aftercooler coolant will run through, and I'll pack ice inside the can around the coil to cool down the coolant... back in the day guys used to cut the tp off a beer can, and put a coil of fuel line in the can, then pack the beer can with ice just before a run to cool down the fuel (some probably still do)... same principle, only for coolant instead of fuel.
The thing that looks like another cell on the passenger side of the trunk is the battery box. NHRA requires either a box or a rear firewall to spec., to keep the battery from breaking loose and ending up in the cabin.
NHRA also requires a remote kill switch when the battery is moved. The remote kill switch that Scott set up is removeable.. it's just something I will have available for use when I'm at the track, so Scott set up two wiring configurations, and the three-way marine switch gives me the option of switching from one configuration to another. In "Street Mode", the remote kill switch is bypassed, so the ignition key is the only on-off switch, just like a normal street car. In "Track Mode", the remote switch has to be closed for the car to run.
... Oh yeah, and the third mode?? that would be "Off" and the car is not going anywhere until someone opens the trunk and figures it out. Of course there will be an "Off" tune in the flip chip as well... can't be too careful...
I was surprised to find out what all is involved in doing a proper
battery relocation and kill switch. After Scott explained to me what all he had in mind, I called an old school guy in California who's been doing hot rod electrical systems for 30 years. He started with MOPAR and now sells kits and relays and stuff for GM, too. There is more too it than just moving the battery, hooking up an extra kill switch and running cable.. that is, to do it safely and do it right. It takes a few extra solenoids and fuses and things... Of course the two separate wiring configurations is optional. Keep in mind that that the fuel and fuel lines and pumps are back there with lots of fumes, especially in a crash situation... and maybe 100 amps, give or take, going out, and coming back to the battery.
