1M Fire in boot/trunk help

My 1M went on fire in the boot when testing at the track, cat less down pipe std system MHD tune trying to find out if the exhaust started it or a wiring problem. It melted the boot lock so had to crowbar it open to put the fire out. Anyone else had this problem? Your thoughts please as next time I may not make it to the fire truck and the car could burn to the ground.
Looking for battery box and all the wiring from the boot along with the carpet and all other parts, are there other models that run the same loom in the boot. I know the battery sits at a different angle and more to the right of the centre line. I am in Victoria Australia.

When I find how to load photos I will load them, I have followed the instructions with no joy

It looks like it started at the battery. Anybody know if 1M's had the battery wiring recall, and if so, if this would be the result of not having the recall completed?
