The battery arrived, but only after I signed a waiver taking full responsibility for any damage because I wanted the change the battery out myself. OY! The only hard part was peeling the old battery--it's stuck to the case with two sided tape--off the case.
The little three wire plug is fool proof--it only goes together one way.
Now it takes a charge very quickly and is working fine.

Hi, I've installed a set on a Cessna 182 but not on a Piper. I've considered putting a set on my Comanche but haven't gotten to it yet. From what I hear they do improve aileron effectiveness at the lower end of the speed spectrum, and they are supposed to improve climb rates.
Sorry I can't give you any hard numbers.
