|jb4674||I put a 34 as well in my 2014 EX and I didn't use any upgraded parts. I took the plastic box out, replaced the battery and used the same tie down.|

How I put a Group 34 AGM in a 2014 Sport without needing any special V6 parts.

|SlvrDragon50||Just threw in the 24F battery as an emergency until the actual OEM parts come in. Car starts up sooooooooooooooo much better.|

My car is just over a year old so no issues yet but... imagine my surprise when I realized (just now) that my 7th gen also came with 51R battery (and I have been driving it since 2005). And you know what - I never had a problem...
All of that being said - I appreciate knowing exactly what I need if I want to go up to a larger battery when time comes; which I think I will do (likely 35). Seems like the 9th gen has a lot more load on the battery when in Aux mode and sometimes I do that.

2nd battery dead but out of warranty now A little under a year for this one.
Just bought all the OEM parts to put in the 24F battery (~$60 shipped). Will have to find a good 24F battery to drop in.

It is true you can do this without new hardware, but it will look like a factory install if you have the hardware. The plastic covers are there to protect the battery in a collision and to protect the car from leaking acid and a battery explosion.

Question: When replacing an original 51F with a 24F, is a larger-gauge ground cable required?

|Pushinair247||Just swapped my original 51R with a 24F. I bought the battery box (tray) for the V6, but decided to save the money and not buy the plastic battery cover. Was able to use the original hold-down bar and bolts/nuts.|

I went with the Walmart "Canadian" 24F (725 CCA) and splurged on the V6 plate to hold it down. The flattened i4 plate was doing the job, but I didn't like the way it was digging into the battery casing. Couldn't justify $60+ for the tray/cover, though.
Now I'm ready for NYC winters.
