    Brother Hankook 40 AMP maintenance free battery is more than enough for your Khyber no need of wasting money it will cost you 5,500 minus 800 for your old battery.

    AGS 45AH will also get the job done.

    I have ACDelco 45AH on my 1988 Accord 1.6L and it starts in half self.

    I even once started a Shahzore with ACDelco.

    go for 11 plate battery of either company(although i recommend ags), i'm using the same from ags in my khyber(although i'll opt for the 60 amp after i get the cng kit out of way or remove it completely), the reason i'm recommending 11 plate battery is that at the end of its life it will able to provide more juice to start the engine.

    all brand name batteries are equally good, only bad experience i ever had was with excide, i would go for volta, fbor phoenix over excide any day. whichever brand's battery u decide to buy, try to get its first electrolyte get filled by someone who knows his work. this will guarantee that the battery would not disturb u in next 3-3.5 years.

    Today when i went to a btry dealer. He opened a file to chck rates, i saw for ags 50 the rate was around 3400. Other charges were of electrolyte around 600-700 chrging 300-400 etc which takes its price to 4500. it means charging money plus electrolyte is the saving. They can use 2nmbr electrolyte to save money

    again went for phoenix...for 50 amp this time. i have read some where that 9 plate battery has long life than 11 plate. and 50 or 55 both serves the purpose. i dont have anything like HIDs or Amplifier. so i think 45amp could do the work..
    paid 2900 with old battery adjusted in 700. phoenix xp 55 with 11 plate was of 4500.
