what ever battery you get make sure it has both top and side post then its very easy to add a extra power wire for a stereo or something

you can go with a regular side post battery and still connect amps easily using this:

I just use my stock battery with one of those since mine is 1,200 CCA from the factory anyways.

I had one of those bolts and wasn't a big fan of it.

I got quite a beefy energizer battery from Wal-Mart. It was about $90 Canadian. It'* been really great so far, especially on those days with a crapload of cranking when she won't start. Crappy ICM, Coils, etc...But good battery.
