Battery Pete is an avid car guy. He understands what you need from Small Battery Retrofit Kits in a racing application. Always use an AGM or Lithium Battery over larger 12 volt lead acid for better mounting flexibility and explosive power. To ensure long battery life before and after your install:.
1.) Properly charge during storage and after use with a quality charger that puts out several amps in bulk phase. Charge cycle should be 3 at the lowest, but 5 to 10 amps is better, with a float phase specific to AGM batteries. Good ones are NOCO Genius or the CTEK line of chargers. BT is also ok.
2.) Use the mounting bracket included in the kit sent by Battery Pete to fit the battery properly. This prevents squeezing it too tightly. You can mount these brackets with battery in any orientation, just not upside down where the terminals are facing the ground. This is because they do vent on occasion with extreme temp or pressure.
Battery Pete offers a complete line of automotive small battery kits for all applications (engine size and power needs) such as Porsche, Corvette, Tuner.

One More Note
All AGM batteries require specific charging vs traditional lead acid batteries. They should be charged periodically with a smart charger and algorithms designed specifically for AGM batteries that meet the voltage and capacity requirements of the one in your application. AGM batteries like to be charged between 14.4 and 14.8 volts. It is further recommended that you turn up the regulator in your vehicles charging system if used as a daily driver. Commonly cars are set to charge between 13.2 and 13.8v which will not properly saturate and charge the battery properly.
