Stock weighs ~40lbs.

The ZPI battery kit looks like nothing a large motorcycle battery, and a new tie down. I would not recommend you switch to a battery with less than 600 Cold Cranking Amps and a decent reserve, otherwise your are setting yourself up to having a dead battery when you go to get in your car and go to work on a cold morning. Its just not a good plan.

The closest match to the OEM Panasonic (10.125" L x 6.625" D x 8.875" H) is the Group 24. Either of the common Optimas (the 35/75 and 34/78) will fit easily, as will any of the 1800 series dry cells from Odyssey or Kinetik. If you have no stereo setup beyond stock, you can probably survive with a PC680, but I still don't personally recommend it.

Wow, that PC680 would be pushing it.

Don't run your radio for more than like 15 minutes and expect your engine to start.

Since its sorta related.

Doc: Why did you go with a Red-Top instead of just a more traditional Yellow-Top?

RedTop is a starter battery, YellowTop is a deep cycle. If you drive your car normally, and seldom deep-discharge the battery ( meaning it's constantly receiving a maintenance charge) the RedTop is the better choice.

I would go with Red Top as well. I dont need a deep cycle and mainly want good starting power when the car has sat out all night in sub zero temps. If I had a big audio system and ran it at high power often (like at car audio shows), then I would want the yellow top.

somebody on the forums discouraged me into not getting an optium battery,..

Anyway, when should we replace our batteries. I would like to be proactive.

When the current one dies. I put in my Optima because I needed more posts, and a smaller cell.
