its being used for a car. beyond that i'm not sure why you need to know the application. It won't be listed in any application list. anywhere. ever.

why does every fucking vendor ask me stupid questions like 'whats the application' when I have given you a fucking exact mfgr & part number???? fuck! at that point it seems the application is fucking irrelevant.

Well, autozone doesn't sell a non-ribbed 3/4" wide tensioner pulley for a supercharger on an rx8. Why? Because an rx8 does not come with a supercharger to require such a part. But when I'm working on an rx8 that I have put a supercharger on I probably know what the fuck it is that i'm looking for. If you have one of those. tell me. tell me a price. if you dont. tell me you dont. but don't ask me what it's for because it wont be in the god damn computer under mazda.

Here's the reason, when a manfuacturer gets you a battery our selection is based on the specific car or bike. This way its sized up right and the terminals are in factory position. There is no way to base a search on size of a battery. Hopefully that should answer why that's the commonly asked question.

I've already sent in a request to find our comparable battery to the one your looking for so I should have an answer for you later today.

Your vendor should be able to help you with this, if not, they are worthless.

I bet they have you logging into their website to place orders, no?
