    Battery recommendations

    I'm going to be running a chevy 350 stroked out to 4.6 with a Holly Street Avenger carb. What battery would you recommend?

    A chevy 350 is 5.7 as standard, mine is stroked to 6.3 so don't know what you mean with 4.6. As for battery size, as big as you can get away with really

    I use these now on all sorts including my 427 and a big old diesel generator. Good quality being a leisure battery and will not suffer with long periods of no use. Good cranking power too.

    Hi,

    I would recommend a Bosch S5-008 , quite small with 75AH and 750CA . Turns over a tuned LS7 . Higher compression than your chevy.

    I purchased a Exide Premium 64Ah 640CCA 12vType 027 for my LS1 and it's performed really well.

    Good advice. Reminds me of an old pic I made up:

    Another for the Bosch S5. Round post. Cranks my Ford 351c no problem and great storage over winter period.

    008 BOSCH CAR BATTERY 12V 77AH TYPE 096 S5008

    These are also good

    Varta Silver 096 Car Battery - 5 Year Guarantee and a better price.

    BOTH Varta- Bosch batteries are made in the same factory.
