This is what happens when you dont check if the bonnet clears the battery terminals after doing an intake mod :)

Sorry Elliot, but thats rediculous! :thumbsdow
My mate did the exact same thing to his mazda 626 turbo when he changed the intake and put a pod filter on. He killed his battery and fried the Alternator.
Hopefully u were lucky? :)

i saw telling elliot, i was halfway through my intake mod and had to go see my ex gf in castlemain, i tied the batter ydown and on the way there the rope snapped when i was taking a corner at 130 under full throttle, the battery fell over and shorted, was hella scarey coz the power starting being intimitant so the tail started fish tailing, the guages were going nuts and all the lights were flashing , i'm like oh shit,, got it under control and pulled over, did some super dooper maguiver stuff with sticks, bark and an old jumper, got me back to melbourne ok till i could finish it off hehe

the best ghetto fix was on teh way to mt buller when my air con ceased up and i had to get a new belt and tension it bypassing the air con, unbolted the bottom half of the alternator and wedged a stick under it to tension it, drove the rest of teh way to buller and all the way back home, no worries :P

My bet is that you don't have the protector of the positive terminal anymore?

like 50% of used car don't have them either !

Lol rayme, lemme guess - your a scientest? :D:D

The terminal did actually have a thin protector, but it must have shorted through a hole in it because the entire thing was melted down and burnt to a crisp over the terminal.

Yeah, its called the "straight intake mod". u end up putting your battery where your airbox use to be.If you have a GT4 you should do it!
there a write-ups about it here floating around.. :D
