Red top should fit. It is shorter than the stock one!!! Just a little bit wider. I had that battery in a car that had 3 12" subs, a 1500 watt rms amp, 560 watt rms amp, 3 sets of components, and 1 cap. Works Great!

Unfortunately I don't...I got mine for $60 because I worked at circuit city. I used to have an awesome discount. Good Luck man!!! I just put it in my celica. Matches my Injen CAI perfectly!!! thumbsup
