    I don’t think you can go that big, today I have been building a battery box for an 096 Yuasa 9000 under the back seat of a Golf 2 and they are huge.

Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I'm sure we used to buy 096 batteries where I used to work. I can't remember of hand the ah but I think is was around 70-80ah.

    Google batteries fitment and sizes.

    I fitted a new battery earlier this year and bigger capacity.

    OEM Banner BA2 61Ah 330A DIN 540A CCA EN/SAE 240x178x210

    EXTW067TE Exide Premium with Carbon Boost EA770 77Ah 760 CCA AE[EN] 71.03 278x190x175

    The use Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) now I'm old so I use the good capacity ah which means more.

    The Yuasa 9000 I am building an under back seat box for says 80Ah on top, I would have gone bigger but there isn't enough width available.
