Not if you get an Optima battery, but I dont I dont know about a conventional Nissan or "Autozone" battery. I am getting ready to do mine as well next weekend and plan on getting an Optima.

That, and to change the weight distribution, making the car a little less front-heavy.

i moved mine to the back because i am using a HS warm air intake setup, and the filter was hitting on the battery tie down straps, i now have a dented up worthless K&N filter.

Just remember the slack jawed yodel at the drag strip or the tech dude at an auto-x may not allow you to run without one. It seems they dont know what a sealed battery is or does. All they know is to look for is a tube. I would probaly go ahead and put one in even tho you may not need it. Wont hurt anything, and could possibly speed up tech inspections.

Ok you want to make the front heavy. If you want traction more weight= better traction. Thats my 2 cents.

From a drag racing standpoint, you're absolutely correct (in reference to FWD cars). But from a road race/autox standpoint (which was what I was referring to), the more evenly balanced car, the better. In that case, front-heavy=not good.
