Hey
Yeah cos you are disconnecting the battery you will loose the radio stations and the clock will reset.
As for battery choice for the evo...sorry I cant help there.

Before you disconnect your battery to put your new battery in use jumper leads to another battery so your car does not loose power then you won't have to reprogram your radio channels again.

Battery spec is fine beside that its not 100% maintenance free with the battery located in the boot.
And anything electrical that has a memory eg defi control unit, radio stations, cluster K's trip unit etc will reset.
The worse case scenario when changing battery is you blown one/few fuse.
As for battery choice, unless u dont mind topping up with water/acid from time to time, try find a 100% maintenance free. Will be more pricey though

battery is located in the boot. needs to be a sealed battery for safety and roadworthy reasons. lead acid or "wet" type batteries (any battery where the cells are accessible should not be used inside the cabin of a car/caravan as they release poisonous gases.

Get the battery shop to change it, most have a battery the plug into the cigeratte lighter to keep all presets
