  1. I nominate myself, build my sig, I have some updated pics I will share soon, im currently at 3700rms
  2. lol a worn out pulley? and it makes noise so you go back to stock to have a quiet oem sound? seems like mechman is using real quality parts here.... even if 1 groove wore out on the pulley if you have a 6 groove belt that is more than enough for 200 amps still with 5 grooves. how does only one groove wear out? how does the pulley wear out? rubber vs metal. the metal should win. the belt wears not the pulley. this reminds me of that time mechman was trying to get out of warranty because the customer put more than one run from the charging post and they said it can hurt the alternator. ya right guys. and they charged you for a pulley that costs 10 dollars? so you payed 5 plus shipping? if you payed more thats pretty shitty especially if you are still under warranty period. When I had my mechman alt I wore out the pulley, the belt had slipped on it slowly over time and it heats up the metal and slowly wears it down/melts it. I switched to a singer 2 years ago and he uses steel pulleys because of this, but I just killed the rectifier in his, probably my fault either running my batteries too low, or because I had to take out my rear battery in the back between the alt and the amps. Either way if you push any alt to far it will fail. Luckily he just charges cost for parts and does the repair for free. I will say after how I was treated with mechman I will never be buying one of there products again, they do make good alts but they basically left me in the ditch to die. Singer on the other hand will always get back to me and has given me excellent customer service. Either way you gotta make sure you dont let your battery's get way down and undercharged, that will kill an alt fast.
  3. How much power rms will these be rated for? And what will they take for burps?
  4. with the amount of motor force these will have I would imagine these could rip doors off and destroy boxes very quickly
  5. order some wire from this place: http://www.electronbeam.com/index.html I got 2/0 from them, enough for 3 runs, this stuff is rediculous, compared to my 1/0 knu ofc it makes it look small, the 1/0 would be more then enough, but I got 2/0 for around $2.12ft, weighs 1/2 per foot, the copper is some of the highest quality, you cant go wrong, then order copper lugs from delcity, they are like 30 cents a piece
  6. most likely I would say its from over charging, I have had one swell a little on me and it was when I had a mechman alt in that had a lot of issues and the voltage constantly would spike up to 16 when the load let off, it leaks a little, but I sealed it up with some plastic glue
  7. I fuse, I fuse everything that comes off of a battery + post, you will see negligible loss, if you ever get in a car accident it may save your car from going up in flames, thats the main reason I do it, not that you will save much, but hey if you get trapped inside and that 1/0 decides to go up like a Christmas tree then your gonna become a turkey dinner, I have a 250amp alt about and a 300 amp fuse that is on a 1/0 knu ofc run, then I also have a run from my alt + post to the rear going right to the my distribution for the amps in the back, which is fused back there, mainly cause I usually run a battery back there
  8. Any new updates on that Alternator? Been checking weekly and haven't seen anything new lol. I almost have the rear door damage on my car fixed so I will be contacting singer soon. Here's a little update on the back door damage. It wasn't a hit and run, their insurance finally compensated me this week. I found a door at the junk yard for 60$ and I am taking a shot at painting it black myself with factory matched paint. First time ever doing something like this, just waiting on the paint to get here. Gallery: http://imgur.com/a/3GpSV Hey, well the alt has been in for a few months now, it works great, I can adjust the voltage from the inside with my dial, voltage holds great, no more belt slip, cost about $50 to get it fixed from hooking it up backwards
  9. I called XS a month or so ago, my battery was still resting at 12.6 even though it wasn't on a charger and had cracked open and sat all winter, I just sealed it up with some abs plastic epoxy, it works great, still holds voltage under load, cant complain, its 3+ years old and has been through a lot,
  10. get an ebay $2 one, they are just as good as stinger meters
