optima is also too short.

you'll need to make the tray a little taller. there should be a white tray under the battery that notches into place.

glue,, tape, velcro something into that tray to raise the level up!

actually, I have the Optima yellow installed and modified it a bit to fit...

- first I sheared one end of the white tray underneath the battery so that it would sit evenly
- next, I simply used washers on the posts to enable perfect fitment

see my engine bay thread for pics, or if you have any questions send me a pm - thumbsup
