Alternator Wiring Pics
'03 4.0 Soch
Howdy, I picked up a 170 amp alt and wanted to re-wire it with 0/1 gauge wire to get the most out of it. I was looking at the stock wiring and it looks to get lost in between the motor, and belt pulley bracket. Did ya'll take out the stock wire and run your new one in the OEM locationg or did you take an entirely different route? I was hoping some of you guys could post some pics of what you've done, so I could get a better idea. Right now I'm running the stock wiring and nothing gets warm or hot, but I would like to get the most juice out of the alt.
Also, is it just me, but when I replaced the Alt with the high output, it seemed like I have MORE power and not less. I thought for sure I was going to lose power due to the increased drag, but my butt dyno tells me different, anyone?
