Default What one? Were at?

Hey guys, I'm going want to purchase a new battery real soon. Espically since purchasing a SSEI motor and tranny is under HIGH consideration this year. So I was wondering what would be the best battery to get and where at? Are hook ups are on the side not on top and I've been to a sears store other day and didn't see any that way. Would I have to get it from the dealer? Also I do have a stearo system in this car ( look at the info on me )

I'd vote for an Optima Red Top. It has the regular side terminals as well as an extra set of top terminals.

If I Recall Correctly

Let'* try and stay on topic though.

And by the way my Optima did great during these -15*F mornings this last week.

Ok cool...Its not like my battery now is failing on me, but I have no idea when this thing has been replaced ( its died on me a couple times while tailgating a NFL games ) but I'd feel better knowing I have a stronger battery then the stock one.

The optima is stronger right?

With 00+ you ought to give consideration to venting since battery is under the seat.
