    youll need
    a positive cable to run to the boot
    a negative cable to run to a good earth on the chassis
    an inline fuse or circuit breaker (your choice) fuses are cheaper and easier to acquire
    a 3 way junction box to attach the positive stuff in the engine bay together (starter connection, fuse box connection and your new positive cable going to the boot)
    crimps to connect everything together

    thats about it from memory

    300amp inline fuse is what I'm using, and 0 or 2 gauge wire. 5m length cost me 25 ish I think rated to 340amp.

    I bought a battery box for boot and mounted it in the corner bolted down to the floor, and then 2 going into a relay mount behind tail light. But there's all kinds of places whatever suits you! It's easy to do as well!
