I just installed the yellow top in mine and I noticed that the surge in the tach is gone. ( I hated that!) The Optima's are really worth spending the money on.....BUY IT!

Have you thought about doing a "Big Three / Grounding Kit"? Here is a basic description taken from Wildman at6thGenAccord.com"The point of this mod is to upgrade your grounds so that your electrical system remains more stable. Less dimming lights, etc. This is mainly for people with audio systems, doing this upgrade will make a big difference in preventing voltage drop."
Here is a link to his DIY: http://www.6thgenaccord.com/forums/s...ead.php?t=1487
It only costs about $30. Plus is dresses up your engine bay a bit[sm=pimp.gif]
If I had a sound system, I would definitely do this. I am thinking about doing it anyway since it is pretty cheap.

Oh yeah...Smaglik, the yellow top battery is the Optima battery. I think they are one of the most expensive batteries you can buy. You can get other colors too I think.

^doing big three would but strain on alt if alt is not upgraded. I would suggest Kinetik powercell. I feel that they are better than optima and come in a better variety to choose from. also optima's are known not to take a charge when they go down to much.

The big 3 doesnt put a strain on the alternator, at least not that Ive ever seen. Its an easy way to increase your charging systems capability.

A Yellow Top battery is a very good investment, much better than a cap which Im not a very big fan of. Plus a cap increases the load on the charging system albeit slightly.

You should also look into Kinetic batteries. Theyre quite a bit more expensive like around $300 but theyre also 1800 CCA's and up!!!
