Next step in the upgrade Id like to hear some feedback on it as no one else showed me how to improve the stock charging system. This is the only way I could envision improving the stock system with some real thick wire thats going to give you all the room for improvement possible.
I want to say I hated the idea of using anything that will come apart and since I dont have the tools to make OEM quality terminals I went with all screw down stuff.
One thing Id like to note is I gave the terminals for this alt to batt cable is a good dipping in polyurethane and kept the contact point taped up. That way you wont have any accidents. Not to mention I wrapped it in heater hose at the end so its not being cooked the fuse holder isn't rated at high temp so its the best way I considered to keep it from taking heat damage.
The red plastic protector was chopped down a bit to get the terminal on, believe it or not I went through a lot of trouble with that part of project and in the end all you need to do is cut down that red protector some and cut out the old rubber for the stock wire shield, add you're own thin heat shrink tube and electrical tape. Yeah its a tight fit even making the oem wire terminal thinner, but it holds.
I made sure my terminals were well covered before I called it a day. I used heater hose, the biggest size Orielys has on a spool.
I will add one more wire from the alt casing lower mount bolt to the battery negative. This is the most strait forward and longest stretch of wire to be added thus its last.
If I had to add up all the wire I bought and give a total of the wire needed to do a complete "big 3" 4.6 style. If its done in 0 gauge Id say including the wire I plan to add but isn't shown, you need a total of 7-8 feet in my case with my car. My rad cable is in a non stock location and likely took more than stock.
