Need some Suggestions/Tips/Advice on new mods
Ok, so after my recent Power Issues i have decided to make a few changes to my electrical system. Here is the list i have come up with:

1. New Battery
2. Grounding Kit
3. New Bat. Terminals
4. Cap. (This will have to wait till my next paycheck)

I have a few questions, and concerns about all this though, hoping someone here will know the answers. First, what kind of battery do you suggest? I'm not sure where to start looking. Second, i know the new battery terminals won't really help much, but i want to replace them for both style, and the stinger positive terminal i am going to purchase have a volt meter on it, a picture is at the bottm. I can install the grounding kit (going with the team celica kit), and the battery, and the negative terminal, but i am having some trouble with the positive terminal installation. the terminal can accommodate either two 1/0 wires, two 4 gauge wires, or a combination of one of each, with the included adapters. now, i have the two positive leads from the car, along with the two leads going to my Amps, and im not sure how these four wires are going to connect together or what i would have to buy to make it all fit. any advice?

I have the Optima Yellow and TeamCelica grounding kit installed and am in the process of purchasing the same battery terminals... I was planning on having the latter installed by a shop but post pics and an install guide if you can - I may do it myself

Sultan - your eninge is f*cking awesome by the way - I was considering taking it into best guy actually, i work there, and the guys in the install bay said they would do it for free. but i am going to try to do it myself first, seeing as everthing else on my car i have done myself. i shouldn't be too hard. I will take lots of pictures and attempt to write an installl guide for them if you guys want it.

How much and where did you find the terminals? mostly reffering to the digital one, i found it a few places ranging from $50 to $84, went with the $50 site of course.
