Optima D34/78 YellowTop battery provides the extra performance and deep-cycling capability that your vehicle demands if it has a lot of accessories like running lights, high-performance stereo/AV system, winches, or hydraulics. The unique SpiralCell design provides a strong and clean power source, ensuring the safety of you, your family and the environment. The Optima battery is ideal for seasonal use because of its very low self-discharge rate. That means you can store your seasonal vehicles all winter without regular charging and still spring out of the starting block when winter is over.

With a 40-year history of technological innovation and engineering OPTIMA products offer unstoppable power for extreme enthusiasts and others who require the ultimate power source.
Trucks with winches, vehicles with high-demand electronics and audio systems, commercial vehicles and heavy equipment can all rely on this battery to provide ultimate starting and deep-cycle power. It also functions well as a forklift battery, tractor battery, or for other applications.

At the heart of every OPTIMA battery is a series of individual spiral-wound cells comprised of two pure (99.99%) lead plates coated in a precise coating of lead oxide. One coated plate is positive and the other is negative.
The unique manufacturing process of spiral winding continuous lead plates is far more precision-controlled and expensive than building traditional flat plate AGM batteries. Custom automated cell-winding machines are required to maintain the close tolerances required to maintain quality and performance. Critical tolerances, temperatures, humidity and automated processes are maintained and constantly monitored.
OPTIMA has built over 100 million individual spiral cells since the early 1990’s. No one knows how to build the highest quality and best performing spiral-wound batteries better than OPTIMA.
What's the difference between OPTIMA RedTop, YellowTop, and BlueTop Batteries?
For normal engine starting where an alternator immediately monitors the state of charge and provides energy to the battery whenever it is needed.
This would describe most stock vehicles, including: automotive and RV underhood starting, heavy equipment where starting is the primary function, and diesel vehicles without aftermarket electronics.
Use this when electrical loads are higher than average, or when the discharge cycle is more than typical engine starting, such as vehicles with multiple electronic accessories and vehicles without alternators. This can also include vehicles with a lot of factory electronics such as power sliding doors and a DVD player. Examples also include: racing vehicles without a charging system, dedicated drag racers, diesel powered vehicles with aftermarket electronics, and vehicles with inverters, winches, or other accessories.
The BlueTop starting battery (dark gray case) is to be used when a dedicated starting battery is required and it should never be used for cycling duty. Use a BlueTop starting battery for marine applications and RVs when the battery's only function is engine starting.
The dual purpose BlueTop (light gray case) can be used for both starting and deep cycling -- it is a true deep cycle battery with extremely high cranking power. Uses include: trolling motors, marine applications with heavy electrical accessories, and RVs.

The one I got is: Optima Batteries 8014-045 D34/78 YellowTop Dual Purpose Battery
The battery was about 1mm longer than the tray (from front to rear of car vs left to right), but the tray just stretches out to accommodate. I laughed and said to myself - "Are you serious?!? that's what I was all worried about?!? Lol!" "Good grief - this fit just fine!!! Lol" :-)
1st pic shows Mustang
2nd pic is looking at battery from drivers side - it shows how the tray stretches to accommodate the 1mm increase in size
3rd shows from the drivers side looking at the front of the battery in the mustang - the thing to notice is that the front side didn't need to stretch since it's already stretched on the back side
4th pic shows mustang from the front and how it's installed without the blue adapter, without the large yellow tray adapter, and without the larger of the 2 red adapters (I left them on top to show how they're not used)
5th picture is from the drivers side looking over the battery to show how I used the red clip that came with the Optima. This red clip is the same as the stock black clip. But the new one looks nicer.
6th picture is from the front at headlight level - they show how I didn't run into any clearance issues.
7th shows no clearance issue.
The pictures help.
See, the Optima site doesn't list it as fitting in the 2000 mustang GT. But yet we all know people put them in their mustangs... So the discrepancy between the 2 kept me from buying for a long time.
But all you do is drop it in, and lock it down. In hindsight, it was really no different than any other battery I have ever installed.
I used the new clamp that came with the battery vs the factory because because the new one was clean, red, and looked cool, but it was identical in shape to the factory clamp.
There were a few other clamp items (blue tray items) for applications in other vehicle types, and they caught me off guard and so I tried to use all of them - partly because I thought they looked cool, but most because I didn't realize that they're actually for different vehicles; it ended up just being the red one, which was the same as the factory black clip that came with the mustang. The other ones would raise the battery with no benefit. I don't remember if there were any clearance issues if it was raised, but don't bother with them unless you're just having fun with the battery changing project and just want to see. You might save them in case you ever get a new car and want to bring the battery - Optima batteries are notorious for lasting a super long time.
But yeah - the yellow top Optima fit just fine in 2000 mustang GT.
I was all worried that I was going to need to get an F150 tray from a salvage yard (which was a pretty neat idea that someone had done successfully), or order a new cool fancy tray (but those aren't cheap). Neither are necessary, but they're good to know because the knowledge helps guarantee that can somehow fit if your experience is somehow different than mine. But you won't need to do it.
You can still do stuff like that it you want, but do it after you put your battery in - because if your tray is the hard plastic one like mine, there is absolutely no problem putting it in. No modification to your tray is needed.
I was very happy about how easily it went in.
Can't believe I waffled for years over getting one.
The low price on Amazon helped too. The absolute best battery I could get otherwise was around 120 dollars, but not nearly the same quality as the Optima. The Optima red top wasn't much more than that on Amazon, but I went yellow because it is an even better battery.
Both the red and yellow are great though - WAAAAY better than other batteries. But most people know that about Optima batteries. I don't think they need people to endorse them.
I'm writing this not so much because of Optima's quality (already known), but more so 2000 Mustang owners know that they can get this and be happy.
It should be the same for any 99-04 mustang, the red or yellow top. But my knowledge is first hand for the 2000, and the Optima Yellow top Optima Battery that I'm rating: Optima Batteries 8014-045 D34/78 Yellow Top Dual Purpose Battery
I have ran optima's in all of my vehicles and they are a great battery, however....
I bought this battery in December of 2016. Its given me zero issues since I installed it in December of 2016. It is now April 2nd 2017. The truck sat parked for 3 days and the battery was dead, I figured no big deal something may have possibly drained it somehow but given the upkeep I provide it was fishy that something drained it in just 3 days Parked.
I brought it to my local auto shop to have it charged, they charged it for 2 hours and it's only reading 4 volts
Thought possibly the rookie at the shop didn't know what he was doing so I was trying to rule out all possible options.
Brought to another shop, same thing. 4.8 volts 0% charged. Told them to try and charge it... nope battery is toast.
Tried dealing with Amazon for a warranty swap and no luck. My total ended up $236 shipped to my door no warranty whatsoever after all.
Do yourself a favor and pick it up at your local parts store for $250 with a warranty.
About the battery, they're fantastic. They run forever. This is my fourth yellow top D34 and I get at least 5 years out of every one in severe cold and heat (-5 degrees to 120 degrees). If that isn't a quality battery I don't know what is.
Not worth all the hype these batteries used to get! Better to spend the money and Buy an Odyssey battery which is built in the USA! Cost is quite high though..
