A week or so ago, I got a new KC Stage 1 turbo. Maybe today I can drop it in. Itís hard to be patient, but even harder to swap turbos on a daily driver. HOT

Lately I have had a few occasional cranks that sounded just a bit slower than normal. Finally followed some of my own advice.......

Disconnected the driver's side battery and checked voltage - 12.6 volts. Then I load tested and the voltage dropped to near zero. Charged it for awhile and repeated the test. Voltage was at 13 volts, but dropped to near zero under a load.

Tested the passenger battery and it tested ok, just not as strong as it should have been. After my DieHard Platinums failed on me, I got the Diehard Advanced Gold AGMs as part of the warranty (if it hadn't have been for the warranty, I would not have gone w/ the Diehard Advanced Gold batteries). They seem to last around 2 years. I guess 2 years is ok, but not what I want in a battery.

Installed two new X2Power AGM batteries. 60 month free replacement. 15% off at BatteriesPlus. Expensive, but they have nice reviews.

I got away from die hard batteries 25 years ago. Tried interstate with no success. Went to Motorcraft over 20 years ago and have always gotten 4 to 6 trouble free years out of them. Between personal and work vehicles we run 11
vehicles almost every day. All Fords and 1 Mercury. For some strange reason Interstate batteries work well in my International bucket truck.

I just went with Motorcraft as well. I had Optima yellow tops that were 11 years old but, I couldn't justify the extra cash at the time to go back with Optima, they were twice the price. However the fact that they were "maintenance free" was a huge plus. I think if the cash was available I'd probably went back with them.

The Diehard platinums were rebranded Odyssey batteries. They were outstanding. Sears quite selling them quite awhile ago. As they failed, if there was any warranty left, you could only get them replaced w/ the Diehard Advanced Gold which were in no form or fashion an equivalent quality. I wouldn't have considered them except for that.

As far as Motorcraft batteries go, the ones that came w/ a new truck were great. The replacement Motorcraft batteries were not of equivalent quality. I have had plenty of Motorcraft batteries for my 7.3L and never was impressed with them as replacement batteries.

My choice of batteries has come down to the ones I purchased or the Odyssey PC-1750 batteries.

IMO you get what you pay for and you can tell a lot by simply weighing what you are looking to purchase. The purity of the lead also makes a difference.
