I'm thinking of getting a new battery.

At the moment I've got an M-Tec Calcium one in that runs at 12.2v and 14.3v when running.

I've been advised to purchase a Gel 80 amp battery.

Suggestions would be great.

PS: I've got a lot of gauges and running a tuned engine that needs a lot of juice to crank over so a good heavy duty sports battery would be grand.
:guiness:

I just measured up the maximum available battery space, and then looked for the highest amperage and cold cranking battery that would fit, i wouldn't have thought that going for a dry cell is overkill unless you track your car.
