|May 27, 2011 - The big engine needs a little more power to spin over than the four cylinder did.|
The little lightweight PC680 was happy to do the job in 2008, but this year I'm going to run an Optima with more than double the cranking power.

|April 17, 2014 - One thing I've noticed recently is that the Optima battery is starting to struggle a bit.|
Now, we found a very high failure rate on Optimas when we were using them at FM at the time this one was installed. I've been lucky so far, but I decided to replace it proactively with an Odyssey. I ran an Odyssey PC680 in the car when it was a four cylinder and it was a great little unit. This PC925 is a bit beefier for the big engine, but it will drop some weight and will ease my concerns about reliability.
