There are 2 positive wires attached to the battery. What does the one that looks like its going under the block lead to? I'm assuming the other one is the alternator...correct?

-reason i ask is b/c i'm putting in a battery isolator, so my second battery in the trunk can power the my compressors and amp.

Also, does everyone that runs a battery in the trunk just feed a live wire through the car?

I did....I relocated my battery to the trunk...I used 1 Gauge wire....remeber if you go through metal(i.e. firewall) make sure to use a rubber grommet, to prevent the wire to short out.

the one under the block leads to the starter. The other one goes to the high current box and with the alternator.

ok, i see that now. When upgrading the "Big 3", should i just leave the starter wire alone and just upgrade the alt wire in and out of the fuse block to the battery? Thanks

Depends on how bad your wires look, corrosion wise. I have upgraded the Big 3, but will be changing out the stock power and ground cables because of corrosion. No matter how much I cut back, or strip off the wires, there is green residue there. I probably don't have to do it, but it will give me something to do when I install the new fan controller, and alternator.
