993 optima gel cell battery installation

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Year: 1997; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 17000;

i would like to install an optima gel cell battery. the problems, as i perceive, are that a modified mounting bracket is necessary, and the poles are physically at the opposite ends (when compared with a standard battery). the pole positions can be easily dealt with, but was wondering if anyone makes a mounting bracket that will be compatable with the 993 battery tray. there was a picture of a real funky optima mounting bracket in the california car cover catalog, but i do not have the slightest idea if it would work. i did call optima and the tech person was of no help at all. do you have any experience of installing one in a 993, or has anyone else? thanks
