The more Cold Cranking Amps the better. though I'd go with a Yellowtop, if money isnt an issue thumbsup

i think they should know about fitment and size. maybe trial and error process. spineyes

I got the red top and it is perfect. Just add a piece of wood underneath the battery and everything should be flushed with stock battery tie down.

so i decided to buy diehard gold series for now
my new question is if the battery light comes up again and my volt meter drops again is it safe to assume that i have a bad alternator??
