Targa Miata
May 27, 2011 - The big engine needs a little more power to spin over than the four cylinder did.
The little lightweight PC680 was happy to do the job in 2008, but this year I'm going to run an Optima with more than double the cranking power.

April 17, 2014 - One thing I've noticed recently is that the Optima battery is starting to struggle a bit.
Now, we found a very high failure rate on Optimas when we were using them at FM at the time this one was installed. I've been lucky so far, but I decided to replace it proactively with an Odyssey. I ran an Odyssey PC680 in the car when it was a four cylinder and it was a great little unit. This PC925 is a bit beefier for the big engine, but it will drop some weight and will ease my concerns about reliability.
