    Hey guys,

    Now with facebook group I never come over here. Car was running great after I upgraded to bigger Alternator 90amp from b20. The wiring was upgraded with bigger wires. I have tons of pics but they are just on my phone. One day I hope to get bored and upload them. I took the car to the track in Jan and it ran a 15.2 in the quarter mile. I feel like I need more seat time and got to learn how to get a better 60 foot because my average was 2.4

    Hey Messy!

    Do you think the main issue was the wiring? Or was the alternator going bad? Bad voltage regulator or worn out diodes? Seems weird that more alternator output would do anything.

    i did the alt swap myself to the 90 amp. had no issues. adding more grounds is needed . i know this cause doing a voltage drop i was losing alot. added more grounds fixed that issue. retested all ok. if you don't you'll stress out your alt in any car. grounds are crucial.
