I found a thread discussing the optima redtop. I realise your getting a yellow top, but if you read through to the end of the thread, there's a tip for where to cut your battery tray including pics.

Good luck.

Or you could get the 'new' Optima YellowTop 75/25 battery ( 0010.File.tmp/D75_25_082104.pdf)

Stock Group Size: BCI: 75.

Minimum cold cranking amp rating should be 650A.
That is what the rating on the OEM AC Delco battery that came with my GA.

After reading the specs for the yellowtop, I was wondering how much voltage our alternators put out?
