      Video Review & Installation

      Hey, I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and this is my quick review and breakdown of the Optima Red Top performance battery, fitting your 1979 through 2010 Mustang. So, in this video, I'm going to give a quick overview on who this might appeal to, what you should expect to be spending, and then we'll take a very quick look at the installation, where we're gonna be looking at a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and less than 15 minutes to get this into your car.So the Optima Red Top performance battery that I have here today should definitely appeal to a couple of different kinds of Mustang owners out there. First and foremost, it's gonna be the guys out there running upwards of a 30-year old or less car that needs to get into another battery, but doesn't want to shell out an arm and a leg, like you might find at your local parts store. Now, the other Mustang owner out there that I think this would appeal to would be the guys that are fortunate enough to use their Mustang as a weekend warrior, that aren't being daily-driven, that's typically finding that they're gonna be spending most of their time in a garage attached to a battery tender.So, in terms of the construction and materials here, guys, what you see on the table is exactly what you're gonna be getting, and internally, this is going to feature Optima's patented spiral cell construction, which is gonna make this charge that much faster than what you might find out there elsewhere. Now, again, this is gonna be great for the Mustangs that are living in the garage most of, if not all times throughout the year, that are going to be attached to a battery tender as, again, this will recharge faster and give you a much more strong and consistent burst when it comes time to fire it up. So, additionally, Optima's batteries have been known to provide two times more the power getting your Mustang up and running, as well as being vibration and spill resistant, so you can rest easy knowing that you're not gonna run into any issues with this kit down the road.So, in terms of the pricing here, guys, you should expect to be spending about $180 for this kit, which, while it might seem a little bit on the steeper side, if you take a look around, especially at your local parts store or even your dealer, you're gonna see that they're gonna run a little bit higher. But, at the end of the day, you're gonna be getting away with a kit that's gonna look a little bit different than your standard battery, and again, something that I think is gonna be great for a stock replacement battery, as well as being for owners that are gonna have their Mustangs indoors for most of the year.All right, guys, so switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said up top, you're looking at a no-brainer, very simple one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, less than 15 minutes to get this into your car. There's absolutely nothing to this. You're taking your terminals off, pulling your factory or OE-equipped battery, swapping it into place, putting them back on, and you're good to go. It doesn't get any easier than that.So just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. If you're the Mustang owner that's working with a car that's getting up there in age and it's getting time to swap your battery out, or if your car is just a weekend warrior and it's spent more time indoors and outdoors just sitting, this might be a great alternative, as opposed to running down to your dealer or auto parts store and picking up a battery off the shelf.So that's my quick review and breakdown of the Optima Red Top performance battery, fitting your 1979 through 2010 Mustang, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
