Although you have minimal electrics, you'll need a battery that has enough Cold cranking amps (usually shown as a CCA figure in the specification) to get your car going. Personally, if it isn't a competition car where the weight really matters, I fit the biggest battery that I can get into the space available. such a pain in the *rse being stuck somewhere because the battery has gone flat.

What is the engine, and how much compression? I tend to use Transit batteries. If they turn over a diesel on a cold morning, they should turn over a petrol.
