    Which Model Optima Battery Fits in place of my stock battery?

    I drive a 99 Honda Civic and have seen similar cars with an optima battery in place of the stock. I was wondering if any knows or has the same battery in their civic. If so what model is it and do I have to do any modification?

    thanks
    Jerome

    You really dont have to do any mods a regular yellow or red top should fit or you can buy smaller models if i can remember right. Hope that helps

    You will want to use the Red Top for your under the hood battery. The dedicated stereo system battery's are the Yellow Top's, and the Blue Top's are for marine use.

    They are not vehicle specific...ask for a Red Top and it will fit your vehicle.

    I seen a civic with a yellow top in auto sound mags dec 2002 issue and also on car domains website. And it was in place of its stock. I looked up both measurements fro red top (Model 34) and yellow top (model D34). Both dimensions LxWxH - 10"x6.8"x7.8". I dont have a problem with the lenght or height.... Its the width thats a little bit close.
