I don't think I'd bother putting them in the airbox.  I've usually put them
on the unit body box section just to the left (facing the car from the front)
of the radiator.  You just want to try and seal them up for longevity.  I've
had several sets in use for multiple years with zero relay failure even tho
they are mounted externally.  BUT, I'm not in a winter salt zone.

Another lister has commented concerning the use of the jumpstart post... I
still feel you are good shape using it.  You'd be hard pressed to run your
own wiring to the battery that has equivalent or better current capacity.
Voltage drop (and the resulting decrease in lamp lifespan) shouldn't be a
real issue either (when activating the starter), since the headlight circuit
actually goes dead while starting anyway, and really doesn't subject your
lights to any more grief then turning them on and off, or switching from lows
to highs.  I'm a big fan of short wiring runs, and this method provides you
with the means to minimize.

I'll throw in the disclaimer... this is just my opinion... I don't feel it is
necessarily any better or worse than other's opinions.
