just go to sears and ask for whatever battery you want for your car...usually they give you the right battery. If they don't you'll notice it loooks funny and just go back saying "hey damnit wrong battery" and they'll take care of it.

forget the group 35, get a group 24 like out of a fullsize ford, it will fit that's what I have in my 90 sentra, at least you get more CCA's.

This is what you want... It's model 34/78 and it measures 10" x 7" x 7"... it's completely sealed so you can mount it into any postition and your posts are always clean. I paid $119 for it :rolleyes:

If you're worried about your system making your lights and stuff dim, put a capasitor or 2 in there first, then worry about the battery. The capasitor will take the power drain (like a spike - bass hit) and draw constant power from the battery without your alternator having to worry about it. works well for me.

The Optima won't cure the dimming problem unless your battery is on it's last leg. I'd do the capacitor. IMO those batts are WAY overkill for these little old cars. You can got to CSK and get a battery that will perform exactly the same for less than half the money. $120 for a 36 month battery... lol.

If you have a Wal-Mart in your area you could get a Max-1N - its got 1000 cranking amps and 850 Cold cranking amps and a 3 year replacement and a 9year pro-rated warranty. If I remember right its only about $70.00

Actually he wants to relocate the battery in the trunk he wasn't complaining about any audio related problems. The lights never dimmed in my car and I have two MRV-T420 amps. Usually the Alpine headunit shuts off and then it comes back on... but that's very rare only when I'm waiting at a lightstop with a lot of stuff that draws power: audio, rear window defroster, heat fan blasting on high, fog lights, headlights + break lights, windshield wipers. Anyways this is alternator related, but if you want a performance battery check this out.
