I'm actually just going to get over to Costco and get a Group 49 battery. (635csi I think?)

The Kirkland Signature stuff is the best, plus their 57$. Got super reviews everywhere I looked.

Yes. If you don't have the tubing buy some from home hardware and some connectors and fab it up. Push it out the vent hole under the battery tray. If you don't do this you will get the narsty rust under the bumper / passenger side taillight so many e30s have.
