Thats right.

It has a 4yr warrenty and is the largest capacity/highest CCA that I have managed to find that fits.

I did consider getting a larger battery & modifying the battery tray to suit. Would also need to cut the air intage pipe (in my fitment) which I wasn't wild about. The intake ensures that air is taken from in front of the battery as opposed to behind it. I was concerned that it might suck in nasty/corrosive gasses although hydrogen is the only gas I can think of that would be given off. Might not be great to try to combust in a diesel engine
