    Thanks for the replies guys great help as always I need to check the measurements as I have the ak battery tray so it would need to fit in that. I'm not doing any thing fancy electrically just the standard ak loom. I do have a supercharged chevy 350 I don't know if that will make any difference to what I need ?

    Just checked a Web site in the USA. Says 790cca for a 2013 Camaro.

    Guess it will depend to an extent on compression ratio you're running? Agree with the others, get the biggest that will fit.
