Re: Battery location and venting.
You can not just swap flooded batts with AGM, there is substantially more to it.
Definitely strap all batts down. Despite concern over well cells leaking, any battery will be a deadly projectile in a knock down. Having a container that will contain a leak is a very good idea. Ventilation for wel cells is required, but isn't like ventilating a toxic waste site. Just get some air in there. I can't think of a reason why the engine compartment need be involved.
