I learned with a small subaru..
motorcycle batteries are so close to the CCA number..but so far away...

anyway. if there is a listing for your car stick with it.
and I chose to make a cover..but not completely, to cut back on venting.
As one paints and welds, and gets the system going again, the battery changes.,..because the chassis is the ground.
the all sealed batteries has had my imagination. Not good reviews, but my engine is tiny. could work...don't know yet.

the big lesson was: never go too big. find specs work with them as close as possible.
the old gm /ford routine doesnot apply anymore. get that big truck battery out of the little ricer bay!
