Battery type

hey Iwrench2,
this is kind of like which oil or which tires.... should I use.

It seems like the most common batteries are the Odysey (PC680 I think) & Westco. My first choice would be the Westco since it has more power for cooler starts here in northern, IL.

I have just replaced my Westco with another Westco. The one in there was 5 years old and just replaced it because I have a trip coming up and didn't want to take a chance.
Anyway...best price I found was on Ebay. $99.99 with free shipping! Just go to Ebay and type 160203126380.
Hope that helps.
