Question Slightly Different New Battery Question

So @ 5yrs it looks as if my battery may be on the way out - gonna replace before winter & I get stranded somewhere. Length of use is prolly due to my short 26mi/day trips with 13 of them in total darkness - battery never really gets fully charged...


Existing battery in my car is an AGM 90Ah 900CCA 160RC - which at the time, was the largest available for my car.

It seems the 'new' replacement is a AGM 92Ah 900CCA 160RC according to Evan @ Tischer & my dealer.



Planning on going with OEM battery & doing the install myself, I have both the BT Cable & INPA/cable for registration purposes (BT cable is quickest reg).

But because the new battery is 92Ah, compared to my old 90Ah - will I need to code the new battery specs in using INPA also?

Or doesn't that spec matter and/or is it 'close enough'


I don't even recall a 92Ah battery as a choice in code lines...

Thanx

and I actually didn't get the OEM battery - local dealer would only give me 10% off pricing

So I went with AutoCraft Gold AGM H8 with 900CCA, 1000 CA, 95Ah, 160 RC from Advance Auto

Price was $154 with 15% off coupon they are running...
