Engine Compartment/Firewall Temps

I am currently remodeling, thus not flying, my Cruzer and am thinking of changing up to a lithium battery. Currently have battery mounted on engine side of firewall. Lithium batteries do not like high temps. Does anyone know what the engine compartment/firewall temperatures run in a Cruzer? I have a UL engine.RalphN750RPSee More

Not sure of the size, but I have had one in my Cruzer for a couple years.  So far, no issues cranking my Lycoming O-235.  I would recommend getting the battery box they sell.  It made installation a snap.

I have two ETX680C lithium battery in my Zenith CH-750 Cruzer, never a problum,

I highly recommend a OptiMATE Lithium 4s 9.5A TM-275 Battery Charger with Select & TUNE ECU Flash, you can work on your plane with the power switch turn-on with out pulling on the battery, Also a standard battery car charger will not top-off the battery's.

(If you forget to turn off the master power switch ((pilots never forget to do that, LOL)) it will not kill the battery, it has a auto-off function to prevent from damaging the battery.
