Thanks for looking out! Things get a bit sloppy on mobile.

And sorry, I should've mentioned that the catalogue was specific to Canada. A quick Google search yielded nothing for the US

Thank you so much for the info guys! I'm going to measure the battery in a bit and get all the specs off of it. Then I can just use bci sizes to figure out which one will work, which I'm sure will be more than one. This is how I found an AGM battery for the Porsche after 2 factory ones died.

I think the battery is probably fine. I think I had not seen it crank in the winter so I was a bit paranoid. I'm very sensitive to noticing changes on the car.

I used an Optima Red Top as well. There was a rigid plastic cover frame of sorts on the top guarding the terminals. This device also doubled as a spacer beneath the battery to raise it up.

Delkor Battery
6.5-7" H (I didn't take the battery out of the tray to measure it
6.75" W
10 1/8th" L

Good to know about the red top. I wonder if they have a yellow top like that. I've had good experiences with the yellows.

I forgot to note terminal placment--positive is towards the front of the car, terminals are towards the passenger side of the battery, and post style on top.

Are there any indications of reserve capacity on the stock battery?

Not on mine, but they seemed to use a few different manufacturers for the battery and some seems to have specs on them.

That's what the F means.
