Re: optima battery install

it's not an adapter. you have to remove your battery tray and replace it with an optima tray. they can be bought through jegs or summit or any other speed shop

Re: optima battery install

i've checked with a local shop and with optima as well, they said there is no application specific battery tray and it would have to be customized? any that's installed this before know here to get it or have a link to the item so i can get this done asap? thanks!
