Bats live in caves.

Batteries live under the hood or in the trunk.

I suggest you also put in a larger engine-to-body ground cable, since the battery will no longer be grounded to the engine.

I see the humor in it as well.

Just a side note. Moving the battery to the trunk is very close to the equivalentof moving your engine back 1".

Just remember that if you go to a drag strip that onforces the rules, they'll prolly want you to have a safety switch on the rear
