the specs seem like they check out. 14.8v and 20c discharge you should be clear. swap out the plug to deans and let her buck.

I use the 3200 30c version of that battery in my starterbox and it works very well. I need the extra mah starting my 2 cars and my buddies cars. Lasts all day.

Should be fine. Just check the voltage now and again when using it the first time. And then see how many mah it takes to get charged up again.

For a weekend of starting my 2 cars, which came about to 25 - 30 starts, my battery took just over 1300 mah. The engines both had more than 2 gallons through them, so they did start pretty easy though.
