battery is just about to give out and costco doesn't have the 24-f battery size available. anyone using an alternative battery size with no problems??
i was thinking 35 or 34 f sizes with a higher cca and reserve capacity than oem.
could i possibly measure physical dimensions and ratings and make sure its at least the same size as my battery with more power?
costco batteries are prretty cheap and supposed to be good quality.
Yea as long as it fits under the hood you should be ok, make sure the terminals are on the right side or put longer cables on. I ran a Die Hard Gold 900cca in my Geo Metro (it kept the lights from blinking with the system)
Butthurtness at it's best, is when someone's feelings get hurt over something said on an internet message board and they type in big letters.
If there is an AutoZone in your area, their gold batteries are great. Higher than stock CCA too. Had one in my Accord, even with underdrive pullies and Texas summer heat, I got 4 1/2 years out of it, where the last one only lasted 3. Still had some warranty left so I replaced it with a new one for about $35 or so.

Optima red's are super cheap - even less than I could locate anywhere on-line - at Sam's Club. I just put a 35 (not sure if that's the same one my Max takes) in my Murano for under $150, including tax.
There was a $25 rebate that helped with the price too, though.
"A gel battery is typically a modification of a conventional lead-acid automotive or marine battery. A gelling agent is added to the electrolyte to reduce movement inside the battery case. OPTIMA Deep Cycle batteries are able to deliver and receive higher amperages than gel cell batteries, due to the far-higher internal resistance of gel batteries. Most gel batteries can't handle engine starting duties, but OPTIMA Deep Cycle batteries can."
Any battery that will let your hood close will work. However, depending on your charging system, cheaper batteries with fewer CCAs will not tolerate as much abuse and will fail faster in the event of a fading alternator.
But of course! And may i suggest that when you change your battery' you go ahead and take a good look at your ground points as well. I just redid my Wires and replaced my battery yesterday, as the one i got from NAPA was defective 500 CCA when it was supposed to be 850... so yeah it was under a year warenty so i cant complain too much. But back to my point. i was drawing too much current at IDLE and my voltage hit 12.3 which drew from the battery so i slowly helped to Nuke it. so. Sand Them Grounds, and Decorrode Them Terminals!

1 of 2 possibilities is likely to transpire, both of which im sure you'd be comfortable with.
1. you go jDm fast yo and race crusher for slips
2. you blow that 4 banger into oblivion with improper A/F and thus rid yourself of the thing.
I see no downfall here. Lets make a deal.
