    Need a Replacement Battery? Gel?

    Need to replace the battery in my car, Which one do you guys suggest? I wanna do a Gel Battery, So I am looking for fitment. I have a kinetik but it doesnt fit in the tray to loose and the terminals are on top. So I need one with terminals on the side and that fits in the factory tray. Is there a way to stretch the battery cables if i cant get one with the terminals on the side? Is there a way to tighten the battery in the tray if its loose? The is about 1 inch clearance between the lock and the battery. Let me know.

    Thanks

    I would put a Yellow Top in it if you have any type of sounds.

    Why the red top, out of curiousity.

    The YellowTop is a combo battery, between the red and blue... and performs like nothing else...

    From what I was told it is strictly for starting applications, where the yellow like you said is a combo. I do not need it for any type of audio system or anything just the starting power. Also i mean it looks great next to my MSD red blacster coils

    If they were the same price, I'd get the Yellow, always, but if it matches your curtains or whatever, then by all means.

    The Yellow top is a strong starter too. My car starts the second I hear the starter engage... I can basically tap my key, and it starts.. I normally give it about 1/4 of a second though. Still---nothing compared to the stock Delco battery.

    Sounds like you're happy with it, and that's what matters. I would just feel silly if I ever upgraded my headunit or something, and then DOH, wish I had the Yellowtop...
