N00b question please.......

ECP have only one battery option for the 996.2 GT3. (smaller one 096, battery length 278mm)

For my old 996 Carrera 2 3.4, ECP have two options, small one and the larger one 110, battery length 315mm.

I had a look at the battery tray and it’d appear to be similar to my old C2’s, so does that mean it’s perfectly ok to fit the larger battery?

Just wondering why ECP only suggested the smaller size for the GT3.

Thanks.

the larger batteries fit just fine

Porsche spec the 'lighter' battery for the GT3 but mean they dont have sufficient life span

i had my oem battery changed by porsche assist (RAC) to a larger type and RAC branded

make sure you get the correct spec
