Default Interstate Battery Opinions???

I just purchased a Interstate Battery rated at 550 CCA. Which has me a little worried since our winters in Toronto can be pretty bad.

Can anyone give me a breakdown of what I should be looking for?

What are the specs for a replacement battery on a 2002 WRX?

Not sure what you get up there, but down here in the US our OEM batteries were 350CCA. In very cold conditions the cranking with them is rather slow. Maybe up in Canada you got better batteries but I don't know for sure.
The Interstate w/550CCA should be sufficient as long as you keep it maintained by checking the water level (if applicable) and keep it fully charged by either driving the car regularly or using a trickle-charger.
