I'd imagine this is a no brainer but to be sure, will a VE V8 battery fit in fine to replace in a V6?
I'd hate to buy a v8 battery with the higher cranking amps only to have it not fit.

I can't see it being a problem. Surely Holden wouldn't design separate battery set ups for V6 and V8? V8 battery would just be higher or longer but same width as V6?

Who knows for sure?

I am not sure about the battery size of the Ve V8 have not had one to change at work.
But why dont you just get a high CCA ratting for your car. It does not matter if it from a V8 CCA IS CCA.

In my VSV6,I just replaced my Century 430 CCA battery, for a AC Delco 600 CCA battery.It cost me $120.Some places wanted $180 for a 600 CCA battery.But as mentioned above ,get a battery with the highest CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) rating that you can get.

Cheers folks :)
Have found most places selling quite normal batteries for them. ie lead acid.
What's with that?

The dead battery says lead acid also and warns that a vent tube needs to be installed, there is no vent tube on it, no place for one to fit and I can't find any location for a vent tube to vent to.
