I had an oddysey in my 4000tq and it was awesome. It was small enough 
that I didnt have to relocate the battery to the trunk, it still fit 
behind the wastegate. Never had a problem with it.. only issue was that 
on REALLY cold mornings (0deg F or below) it cranked a little slow, but 
not bad, and still easily started the car. The car also had a good sized 
stereo in it with subs, and never an issue.
Also a happy customer.
