"The Braille battery is actually a neat little battery manufactured by East Penn Manufacturing.Seems like 400 CCA would be adequate for a little 4-cylinder.
Their battery is the Deka EXT30L battery. It is sold under several different brands including "Big Crank" and "Magna Power". The Deka, Big Crank, and Magna brands can be had for about a hundred bucks. They are specifically marketed as motorcycle/atv type batteries.
Braille (as well as Tomioka) rebadge them with their stickers and markets them as lightweight "racing" batteries at twice or three times the cost. They also greatly exaggerate the amp output. Braille lists "pulse" amps however, that is a b/s rating. Take a box wrench and short it across the battery posts and most all batteries will arc with a tremendous blast of energy. What matters is CCA (cold cranking amps).
Anyway, I installed a "Big Crank" battery in my 400 hp 10.5 compression v-8 motor and it starts just fine."
