I am trying to figure out how many CCA a replacement battery for my 97 Ford Taurus should have by looking at the Motorcraft battery BXT-36R recommended in the manual. But I can't seem to find the specs for it. Googling did not help.. Any ideas?

I believe they are CA at 32 degrees F:800 CCA at 0 degrees F:650
