VF V8 Calais
Hello. Chasing recommendations on a battery for my VE Calais. I am in Perth. Prices seem to vary so wondering if anyone had any experience buying one over here. Cheers

AC Delco battery from Holden. 850CCA which is listed for V8 Ute. That’s what is in our VE V6 Calais.

You can then also enter the AC Delco/Holden Monaro competition having spent over $100 at a dealership, although it’s pointless because I’m going to win it.

They are a good battery and a factory fitted battery. Price is competitive with any other.

Make sure you connect the vent tubes that come with it.

I am about to buy a ACDELCO AFA 92281005 at a cheap price which I believe is the battery from a VF. I am told this will be fit and be fine for my car? It's 610 amps , 660cca.

Part number was GMS56838 AC Delco.
$181.82 + GST

That has 850 CCA

Starts so fast it happens almost before you even turn the key.

The base on is 500. Surely a 610 is big enough?

It is. Our original one was 610 or something like that. We had a few issues in the Calais that Holden could t solve and because I always used bigger batteries in all my cars to run extra things, I used a bigger battery and solved a bunch of things and then a software update was run by Holden and it fixed the rest.
