As many CCA as you can find, anything over 850 is fine, but that extra amp can make the difference between starting and being stranded. Also, get an AGM battery, like the DieHard Platinum p2s, 930CCA@0f.

if you do my battery mod then CCAs dont make much of a difference, you could have two 500s in there and it will be fine

Two new Motorcraft OEM batteries. My 94 spins blindingly fast and fires in under 2 seconds every time. The more I use OEM stuff on my truck the more I realize it's the only way to go.
