they dont make one that fits - you need to get one thats close, and put a piece of wood underneith it so that its high enough to be mounted - its not easy to make it look pretty... you'll see when you install it

Its totally woth the money to get one - I left my car out all night when it was -45 and colder, - a bunch of times in fact, and my car started everytime. (my celica was baught in Calgary, so the dealer didn't install a block heater. Its standard equipment where I live cause its so freekin cold)

or go to autozone and buy replacement battery rods
they have them shorter, same design...so it accomodates the smaller battery, the threading goes down further.

Mine actually died, but I think Pep Boys just sells bad ones and doesn't maintain them. Don't buy from Pep Boys. went with another brand and have been fine so it's not my alternator.
