Is there a better brand for old Toys? I searched www and here. They have them for different makes now maybe the terminals are different. Or will just any generic kit work? Just to be sure.

Better off to assemble your own kit. When I did the relocate on my old 162 I just bought a generic battery box from the store (CSK, etc) and then ordered everything from KnuKoncepts. 1/0 wire for ground and B+ feed to engine bay. Used some 4g wire for starter, alternator and then 1/0 again for ground wiring in engine bay. Worked great since I then had another spot to tap into for gauges or other +12v stuff I needed in the engine bay.

If you want to save money on the power wire and fuse just go to a wreckers and look for a BMW or something with a trunk mounted battery, ideally a sedan since the cable will be longer.

+1 I got my battery cable from a BMW. They have pretty nice terminals already too.

I bought the cables premade from ebay and mounted it in the rear. You can customize the length which is nice.

I ran the cable through the drivers side fender well into the cabin and to the back using this guide as a reference http://www.alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=26689
