I haven't done this, but it should be a relatively straight forward task. Essentially, you need "big" cables running to the starter motor, earth (on the engine), and medium cables to the coil and alternator, and it's really a matter of connecting it like an extension lead :) I'm sure others on here have done it though, so hopefully they'll be more help! Good luck!

easy. put battery in boot, run earth to body in boot, posative cable running to stater motor terminal, and main power feed wire from battery terminal to starter aswell.

At least 2ga for the Positive. You have to compensate for voltage drop across the distance from the trunk back to the front. Negative can be 4 gauge from terminal to ground point on body, then be sure to have a ground for the engine to chassis.
