Do I need to buy. I went to Sears today to buy one, but the parts guy said that they dont make one for 99 Cobra.?. Does anyone know what # battery I need to get?

I am in the same boat that you are in. I have heard that you have to buy a new battery tray and hold down to get an optima battery to fit in the mustangs. I had to modify my battery tray and make my own hold down in my old '94 GT. You might want to check with the optima web site.

Well I just ordered the D34/78 yellow top. Hope it fits.

Got the battery in today. Well it is a little wider but not as long as the factory battery. I just shoved it in the tray. Probably gonna have to find something to keep it from bouncin' around on big bumps.

Thanks Edswhite99, I think I will be getting one soon, or maybe I'll wait until I get my stereo system in. I will fabricate a new battery tray for the optima. I noticed there is a car in the snakepit that has a red top optima in his car with a hold down. I can't remember who it is off hand.
