Re: [T3] type 3 alternators


My Compufire Distributorless ignition system sucks 8amps and other after-market
systems can consume more.  Now add a rainy night behind a 18-wheeler going down
hill (so you're using your brakes ;-) with the CD player pumping out the
music...

What's wrong with having a little more power (using an alternator) than
necessary?  Especially when you can do it without permanently altering the
engine?  Only those who want to stay 100% stock need worry.
