I wish I knew the exact one but it was a Walmart Maxx branded battery. I used their instore lookup thing at the battery aisle.

Looked the same as the old one. The clamp in the trunk fit a little different but not hard to get it to work.

As far at the recode/register issue... I know when you change types of battery (standard, agm, gel) it becomes a big deal.

But if you are sticking with the same type of battery the recode/register thing resets the adaptation so that the new battery will charge more optimally. The walmart battery has a 3 year warranty, so if it takes a shit I am returning it. I haven't had issues.
