Hello sorry this is real late. Here in the US we use the BCI group number system. We don't usually use ampere hour ratings we will use cold cranking amperes instead. I used group # 51R they have 500 CCA and fit perfectly. They crank the engine very fast and have great reserve capacity. I hope this helps.

Best regards,
Paul
