Dj its 1191 pulse cranking amps. it's only downfall is it can't run on pure battery for an extended period of time like a normal sized car battery. but if your really wanting one they go for around 200 something shipped with the braille battery cage.

yeah i know i need a degas cover mike, i could also use a new coolant tank, as this one is all cloudy and stained from use, i also need to fix the a/c system i ahve a leak in one of the lines.
