Here goes, I would like to know if any one have tried to install a second battery beneath the factory one, it seems there is plenty of space and all.
Just wonder if any one done that before or if anyone have any pics of such.
Thanks in advance.

best place for a second battery is the trunk, counter weight the front, but as for one on top of the other- never heard or seen of one set up like that.

I've got a 2001, and there is absolutely no room under the battery at all... what year are you referring to?

It is a plain 2002 coug with a mtx tranny, I know there is a room and I will attempt to do that this weekend and if I will succeed I will post the results some time next week.

There's plenty of room, you'll just have to make a braket to hold things together and replace that stock battery tray. Of course I prefer to use the room for a supercharger, but that's just me ;)

What kind of batteries will you be using? Only thing is the weight addition to one side, you would be suprised how added weight to a point will change the cars stability....but I know we dont have F1 cars...so whatever works for ya!

oh I am gonna move the windshield plastic container somewhere else in order to compensate for weight, meaning the other two batteries are going to be on the right hand corner of the car.

I have an idea. Why dont you make a bracket and mount them under the car on their sides. Cause I know those batteries are kind of small and why do you need four of them? If you buy an optima blue top deep cell it would do just fine I bet. Or heres another idea why dont you remove the spare tire and hide them in there.

123 your idea sounds great "make a bracket and mount them under the car on their sides" I know the blue top would be just as good, but I have these from my previous install and not ready to buy new ones just yet.
