    For all those who've seen the VE engine bay, is there much room in there for the array of chargers that's available for the V8's? I've had a look at some photos, and it looks pretty compact, but it's very hard to judge distance/space lookin at 2D lol...Any thoughts?

    After having a good look over the VE yesterday I noticed they have relocated the battery to the boot, and that the six cylinder is well back in the engine bay, into the firewall. There seemed plenty of room for me, but I'm not an engineer. Battery in the boot has got to be a clue thou?

    they put the battery in the boot so they can fit in one of those a/c filters that remove pollon and all stuff that cause hay fever and allergies. according to carsguide
