Can you exchange a 450cca battery for a 500a cca battery

Yes! If the question is can I replace my 450 with a 500cca battery. The more the better. CCA means cold cranking amps so it will perform better in the cold than a 450CCA. The higher the number means you will have more cold cranking capabilities in colder weather. The voltages are the same.

What is the lowest cranking amps this car requires for this car?

It needs 175-200 amps to crank over the starter, but more required the longer it cranks. I wouldn't recommend a battery with less than 500CCA (cold cranking amperage) rating.

I have an 800 amp battery for my 1995 land cruiser. how many cold cranking amps should my battery have?

Hi: The Specs on a Battery Range From 600 Cold Cranking Amps to 750 Cold Cranking Amps. So if you have a 800 Cold Cranking Amp Battery installed then you are at or Above The Required Amperage Needed.Unless your Running Extra Lighting or Accessories. and you have to consider your Alternator Out-put as well.You need a Alternator that will Keep up the Charge on Your Battery. So in a Nut Shell the More Add Ons you Have the More and The Harder your Alternator has to Work to Try and Keep Your Battery at a Full Charge . A Fully Charged Battery you'll have 2.1 Volts per Cell = 12.6 . Hope this has helped you, Please Let me know how I've Solved your Problem with my Solution. Thanks and Good Luck From d_hubbs

Won't start when cold

Check the Cold Cranking Amps on the Battery that you have. Normally the Cheaper the Battery the Lower the Cold Cranking Amps. I Recommend getting an "Interstate Battery" . It costs a Little more But has a Warranty and the Cold Cranking Amps that you need. They have never let me Down!
