Default aftermarket battery

its cold, my car has big amps, MTXThunder1004 and JL Audio 500 D block to be specific, and I am running Hydra EMS, which I think is not as energy efficient as the stock ECU because it seems to drop my battery voltage during crank to a low 9 voltz. What brand of aftermarket batterys do you guys run, probably competition grade. The car is a 2002 WRX. And also if you guys are running beefed up alternators, any links on this?

thanks

Any of the Optima batteries are a good choice IMO. Some people feel they are pricey though and cheaper batteries like Orbitals are just as good if not better. Search for Optima on here and you will find one thread that has plenty of good info. Also I really like www.remybattery.com for the prices.

Optima 35R Red should be sufficient for you...although, if you like to keep the radio on without the car running, then the Optima Yellow would be better for your application.

I measured the Optima's size and it wont fit in the sleeve, you guys have no problem mounting them? I ended bying an Autocraft Titanium instead of the optima yello which was like 160. Everytime i trie to look up batteries for the MY02 WRX the optima doesn't come up as an option.

That's because you need the reversed terminals to fit, IE the 35R.

you need to buy it from remybattery or tna-sports. Those are the only places that I have seen the reverse terminals.

The beauty of the Optima is that there is no maintenance. Just install it and go.
