Got a battery question...

So I need a new battery and the one I have now is AGM and about 14” I assume that’s the 94r sized battery so my question is has anyone swapped a 94r with an H6/48 battery without any extra work? As it is I can get a 11” H6/48 Bosch AGM for $120 and it would save about 15lbs with a 4 year warranty so I’d really like to make that one work, any input or experience?

How did this work out? I’m going to swap my battery tomorrow and was planning just getting this

I replaced mine with the same H8 but Bosch I didn’t bother attempting to save weight with a smaller batter.
After reading it seems that auto zone one is another popular choice. A tip on changing the battery make sure you have an extension handy at least 6” to reach the tie down bracket

Thanks. Did you lose any coding you'd done previously?

No nothing at all was lost. My EQ setting, presets, seat memory etc was all there after the new battery
