racing battery

Hi I'm fitting a fmic and have a larger ally rad in my 94 import. I've considered getting a racing battery as my current battery is quite big and rubs against the cam cover. Also I'm thinking smaller battery will give me more space to run the pipework up to the engine. I wanted to ask how much power a 94 wrx battery uses to crank to ensure I buy the correct battery. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Regs Gareth
