Batteries

Anyone know any good batteries for an EK? Preferably cheap ones! I know there is Interstate and Optima, any other good ones?

You could try the MotoMaster 72mth or Eliminator.
They are made by Exide.
All the others sold at CT are crap.
There is also a second line Interstate battery as well. Can't remember the name right now. ??Cana-Tron?? or something

How much cold cranking amps you get from the energizer? I know that interstate and optima offer 500 CCA for civics.

^^^^ but u r not using a 51r yellow top lol. the best thing to do is relocate your battery to the back and use a bigger red top optima. i have a energizer as a back up and when i use it, i have no complaints with it at all can;t beat the price. motomaster 72 sucks *** and is not worth $5 as a scrap battery. i use a 51r yellow top optima right now and its ok i guess but i will be relocating my battery to the back soon and switching to a red top. working for a battery company has benefits.
