I'm not really up on batteries, but the ah and cca figures seem to be well below what the Gta is supplied with. As I say, I don't really understand the figures all that well, so maybe someone else will have a better idea.

Don't know if you use your car as an everyday car, but if so, capacity is very low....
(16 Ah compared to 70 Ah standard...)

I suspect you would run into problems starting with cold weather etc.....

i could see the advantage if you were going to use as a track or race car but for a road car and if regularly used in all conditions it will be pointless.
plus i think you will find it wont last very long as you will be trying to pull more current than the battery will be able to handle which will end up breaking it. The alternator will also be feeding it with much higher current than its used to which will also end up shortening the battery life.
