How to install smaller battery below original position

Ok guys follow the pics along if you have questions please ask.
Also the stock battery cables connect up with no mods.










Sorry about the size if its to big take it down and make it more manageable. There is more pics up on this buildup its the Ace Racing Syclone on www.Canadiansyty.com under customers.

Hmmm, Ive been wondering about this mod for a while now, everything looks nice ::ok:: . How well will the wheel well fit though? I too like the idea of just modding the stock tray. How much did that delco run ya?

I really like this battery. Many options on mounting. http://www.batterymart.com/battery.mv?p=ODY-PC680

Starts several syty's that I know of including mine.
Some at the Nats couldn't believe that it is enough battery. I have started it at least 15 times at the track with virtually no chargeback. I do use another battery when running the IC pump between passes.

HOLY CRAP :o only 3 1/16 wide, thats freaking tiny! And surprisingly cheap too! Cool battery, but how well will it hold up to daily use? Not really looking for a race battery.

Thanks,
Arge

I put the 680 in a few cars . Starts and runs fine. I think though you wouldnt want to let the car sit for too long with the small battery.

If you read the the testing of that battery it can sit on the shelf for two years at 77 F without needing a recharge.
If you like to sit and listen to your stereo for long periods you would need a larger battery though.

You do need to read the charging direction though as some battery chargers aren't suitable for it.

Sitting on the shelf - and sitting in a car though - thats two different things. There is always going to be some kind of minor current draw when its connected in the car .

Hence the recommendation to disconnect the battery.

There R 2 batts that I know of that will fit in the spot w/o cutting into the inner fender, which I don't want to get into at this time. The Odyssey dry batt fits easily and a few of the guys have used it. However, it is kinda marginal in my mind w only 280 CCA. I am going w the Optima yellow thin one, I think 51 or 51R, and it fits a little more tightly and has ~ 480 CCA.

It might be marginal in your mind but it really does crank well. It doesn't take as much to start a V6 as some think.

The learjet I fly only pulls maybe 400 amps on start.......

Well, since this thread is already jacked.... :wink:

I use the Genesis G16EP. Cheaper and almost identical to the PC680.
The two are acceptable at normal temps 'cause they're both rated at 440/303 HCA.

Patrick - I have no practical knowledge in this area - just fishing around and going w the numbers. I guess the bottom line is how long these small batteries will last. If mine doesn't last, I'll eventually go w a big batt in the rear.

actually, our motors, when cold, are a relatively easy load on the starter - low compression, and as said above, only 6 holes.
hot, starter nuked by downpipe, not so much easy.
hi patrick.

Well, if anyone cares to know, I ordered my Delco 70DT (the one used in the first post) from the local GM dealership, price was $75. 555 CCA
