I have an 06 accord 4 cylinder. It takes a 51R- S .I was wondering if I can put a 51R- E battery in it without it messing anything up.
Yes I was wondering will it needs mods to work or can I just throw it in and it work. And will it power the 06 enough or will it over power it. I dont want to fry anything.What exactly do you mean "without messing anything up"?
Are you asking if it will fit without modification?
Are you asking if the battery will be of sufficient power/amps/CCA for your needs?
There is no such thing as "over powering" a 12V DC system with a larger 12V automobile battery. It may hold more charge, and that's a good thing, it may provide more amperage for cranking, and that's a good thing. If it fits and can be properly connected and secured, that's all there is to it. I really wish I had thought of putting in a larger battery on the '03.Yes I was wondering will it needs mods to work or can I just throw it in and it work.

A larger ground cable is a good thing too ... but if the postive going to the starter is also not "big" then you're not getting much benefit from the larger ground. (Look up "big 3" battery cable threads anywhere). For such I'd go for the ground + starter cable with less emphasis on the alternator to battery cable.Actually I just found I can put a group 35 with 640 cca in. I just need the bigger ground wire thats used in the 6 cylinder. It's bigger and its not as expensive as the weak one that's supposed to go in it.
Good article. Thanks.- about half way down the page, paragraph starting with "Some flooded batteries are offered in N & S versions".Consumer Reports explains how hot weather affects your car battery and shares tips for ensuring reliable starts in summer monthswww.consumerreports.org
I always buy from Walmart. They are the cheapest, have 5 year warranties, are everywhere, and are the easiest to swap if you need to.How much do you all pay for batteries? I got the one for my 07 4 cylinder for 87 bucks out the door with that 100 month warranty from a Honda dealer I worked at that my employee discount still works at. No issues so far. Going 4 years no hiccups. I think they want like 132 installed after tax. Not bad considering advance auto parts charges 164.99 plus tax for the same thing with 3 year warranty.
