Another FNG Question: What is the space aft of the left strut tower?

Snooping around under the hood yesterday and got to wondering about the void space on the passenger (right) side aft of the strut tower. It looks like it is about the size of a car battery and there are two threaded mounting points on the firewall. Anyone know what this is/was/could be?

Your instincts are correct. That is an alternate battery mounting point.
