Have any of you installed one? 17 lb. weight savings. I think my original battery has died so I'm looking into this. I contacted Braille and they recommend the B3121 or B3121C for the Shelby GT.

I went with a plain old battery from AutoZone the price and warranty is unbelievable. It's not weight saver but very reliable.

Good luck

Oem weighs in at 31lbs

I installed the 3121 to save 10lbs on the nose. Going on two years, so far so good
