Post optima battery question

Has anyone used the 34R optima battery? I know the PT cruiser needs a 26R, but i want to put a nice performace battery in my car to support my nice stereo system, so my lights dont dim at full power, i have almost 3,000 watts powering it. so i need a nice battery. I know the optimas are the good performace battery out there.

SO has anyone used them with no mods needed?

I have a 2003 pt base model, and i put a k&n air intake in, so i guess the battery could be a little taller if needed!

Will this work?

thanks
let me know

If you mean the yellow top? I put one in about 2 1/2 years ago and it's great!
I think it's beginning to weaken just a little as I used to be able to run all my neon and lights at a show for 4-5 hrs without a problem. the other night I ran them for only about 3 and it almost didn't start (clik, clik) and then she turned over. I tightened all the connections and will see what happens this Friday night at our weekly cruise in.
I think it's a good investment as I also have about 3k watts + + + all kinds of goodies. I also hated it when the lights dimmed. Doesn't do that any more.
Good luck Joel
Sorry, can't remember where I got it but paid about $175 for it.

Seems my OEM battery is slowly dieing also...

If I go to Napa will they sell me a "34R" Optima and will this fit in my 2001 PT limited. non turbo, with Airaid intake?

Thanks,

DJ
