      Hey poop face!!! Wish you where on here more often. Know your busy,  and thanks for always  ALWAYS picking up the phone for a chat,.. hope your doing well bro. 

  3. love this build glad you got to check it out steve, adam, wyatt and the utah crew are some cool dudes. looks brutal
  4. with that unit good luck getting a bracket to work with your car. You have a rear mount on your alternator. im sure you could get something to work but it would be difficult. Plus the one in link is a SMALL case, they arent as good as the large cases which are much more expensive. But it will be better than your stock if you can make it fit.
  5. they are going to be on the level and expense of dc power but once again youll be getting the latest technology and hairpin alternators compared to a slot wound universal. only con to hairpin is the cost.
  6. The technology you are getting with the dc power is years ahead of what other companies are offering in the slot wound universal styles. You wont be disappointed with the DC Power and I highly recommend US Alternators. I run one myself. Did you call mechman and see what they can do?
  7. Your car stock case is small and is made by a manufacturer with limited parts to build from that "fit". You cant pack 100 pounds in a 5 pound bag. Both DC Power and US Alternators will make a custom billet case which is larger than your stock one which can house more power reliably. Thats the only way to get a bigger output. You already found the solution but are unwilling to pay for the most important part of the electrical system that not only runs the stereo but also the car! save your self the universal headache and just put up the money and buy a plug and play bolt on billet alternator from DC Power or US Alternators Mechman from my experience doesnt do the elantra in a billet version. They do have billet alts but only for the more common applications.
  8. ctek 7002. that is all you need for those size batteries. although i am sure the xs power charger may be nice, ctek oems for many companies such as northstar, BMW, mercedes etc. Thier chargers (7002 and up) have a 7 step charging process including a reconditioning mode. it can be had for under 100 dollars. try that. it may be able to desulphate the plates enough for battery use. but letting batteries sit in a discharged state and abused is never a good thing.
  9. what happened wouldnt be ok anywhere. lol even in legal states.
  10. Anyone hear about SEMA cutting a bunch of companies and cars from the show just 24 days away?

      i want to hear more.

      What the fuck? What is the reason?

      Idk reason... I saw it on Instagram, seeking more info

  11. nice video steve! I'd like to add 2 bits of info to help educate people. 1. this only applies to amps with unregulated power supplies. higher end JL Audio or Arc audio amps, just to name a few have regulated power supplies in whihc input voltage has no effect on the output. I didnt have audio on so not sure if you mentioned that. but nice video. 2. I think its also important to point out to people who CAN'T HOLD that voltage that boosting their voltage to 15v instead of 14v only to drop to 12 volts since they are exceeding output of alternator does nothing for them. if you dont hold the voltage continously, it does nothing for you. one more thing to one of the posters above @ daniel brill, 12v batteries can be safely charged over 15v depending on conditions, state of charge, and duration. there are many many variables when charging batteries. the xs power intellicharger or ctek smart chargers attempt to cover all the bases when charging a battery. a car alternator can only do so much and is not a proper way to fully charge a battery, even if you have a high output alt. your son is very lucky to have that set up steve! tuned in for more! love the test vids
  12. any pictures of other end of harness? do you have 4 pin stock? i could tell you more with more pictures of harness and regulator. from the looks of it, you got an after market regulator considering its 3 pin oval meaning sense is internal. pics with cover off would help identify the regulator. but all the harness does is make your car work with this regulator. hope it all works out. the elite alt is a nice hairpin unit.
