Make sure that you have the ventilation tubing when replacing the battery. The car is designed to vent battery gases from beneath the car. Substituting a different type battery (without vent ports, a small hole that is located at each end of the battery ) or if you decide to use the battery without the ventilation tubing, you run the risk of an explosion. This is due to the proximity of the battery to the fuel pump, which is also located beneath the seat.Underhood batteries vent naturally into the air within the engine compartment. In your car there is a small hole in front of your battery that leads to the underside of your car.Your tubing is designed to carry the battery's vapors way and direct it out of your car through this hole.

You should also swap the transmission if the motor is going to be more powerful. Also a new computer will be needed for the swap. If you are looking for an easy swap then just find the same motor.
