Default C5 Z06 battery weight

Does anybody know the weight of the factory battery that came in the Z06? I read that GM used a lightweight battery. Thanks!

I doubt at this point in time you are going to find a C5 with its original battery. Basically they were all garbage. I've been running an Optima red top in mine for along time. Don't know the weight though.

Also be aware that there were many cases of the original lead acid batteries leaking, and it's mounted directly above the cars computer. Really bad location for an acid leak. That's another reason to switch to an AGM style battery like the red top, they don't leak. I've had a red top in mine for 6 years now.

I was just curious about the weight. I had read GM used a light weight battery in the C5 Z06. I replaced mine a couple years ago with an ACDelco battery from the Chevy Dealer...it's 32lbs.

My factory battery was an AC Delco AGM battery. It wasn't any lighter than any other AGM battery I've replaced it with.
