You can buy a battery with as many cca as you like as long as the battery fits your battery box. The cca is how long you can crank motor befor you run out of power If you can get a 700-750 cca battery you will be fine. But you could do with a 450-500cca battery if you want. But I wouldn't go less than that especially if your running the v8

I have a similar situation but it turns out that I am also having an unsolved problem with my 2005 Ford 500 electrical system. Although it could be due to a weak battery I have reason to believe that its root cause that something is wrong with the brake light system. Sometimes when I drive the brake lights stay on and other times they don't. Yesterday, with my foot off the brake pedal (in Park) the brake lights would stay on until I lifted the brake pedal. Today, I can not get it to repeat the symptom nor could an expert auto technican find the problem within several minutes. The battery has been tested and found to have 40% of its life(?) remaining.

It should be enough for that size engine. That is 550 AMPs for 30seconds in 0 degrees. Most cars have batteries twice the power than they need. It helps run the accessories like lights and radio. If your car has trouble starting right away, you may want to get the strongest one that you can fit in there. If it runs fine, then I wouldn't worry about it.
