    Well now hold your horses there Fester......The NAPA battery is the exact same battery as the OPTIMA for a fraction of the cost.....They have the red or yellow NAPA brand battery for less than a half of the OPTIMA....I've had the yellow one in the black bitch for well over a year.....great battery...

    I understand....use a 1 or 0 guage cable....I just bought it at a welding supply company.....it is cheap....use plastic conduit fittings for going through the trunk floor so you done have any cable rubbing on metal.....it is very cheap to do.....

    wires

    The ambulance run dual batterys and dual 165 amp alternators i figure the wire shoudl be fine, i just have to crawl under there and see how big it is. Yea im going make sure there is no rub, the napa battery is the same as the optima im going call tommorow and see if the napa store has it in stock if so ill just boost off here when i leave work tommorow and get it tuesday.
