Interesting. Maybe the problem is that this engine requires more force to turn over when it gets hot, as I have heard is a problem with high performance, high compression engines in race cars, airplanes, etc. I would like to know what cranking amps are available from the stock vs replacement batteries for a start, but I would think that would affect the LENGTH of cranking time rather than the FORCE available from the starter motor that's doing the work. Engineers???
