Compressor in engine bay

Hi - I've seen some comments on this subject, but it's not clear to me whether there's space in the fortuner engine bay for a good quality compressor (160 l) if you already have a 2nd battery fitted?
I have a 2014 diesel epic, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of spare space once the 2nd battery is fitted.
Any suggestions? Or even better a pic of where you've done this?
Tx
Rob :)

There is already a turbo installed. Why do you need a compressor? Just kidding :)

Get a compressor in a decent case and keep it in your boot.
It will remain in pristine condition and you can move it around to do other jobs when required.

No space

This weekend I had another good look for a possible mounting space, but there doesn't seem any option within the engine bay. A possibility seems on either side of the winch in the front bumper space (I have a modified bumper) but then it might impede airflow onto the radiator.
Eish - I really would prefer to have it permanently mounted if possible. Just one less piece of equipment buried inside the 'tuna's drawers etc.
I'll keep asking around...
