  1. OK, I built and completed the first prototype kit today for Top Post applications. I believe you guys are REALLY going to dig this kit! These kits will be all 1/0 AWG and offered in (3) lengths, 3 foot, 4 foot, and 5 foot. As usual, I only use tin-plated OFC cable that meets the American Wire Gauge specification for all of my kits. All lugs are SUPER thick tin-plated copper (about three times the weight of standard lugs). All lugs are crimped with our in-house crimping press and then insulated with our SUPER thick adhesive lined heat shrink tubing to promote a weather resistant connection! The 3 foot 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit sells for $115.95 and includes: (1) 3 foot 1/0 AWG Charge Lead - 5/16" lug on one end, and 3/8" lug on the other (1) 3 foot 1/0 AWG Alternator Ground Lead - 3/8" lugs on each end (case / mounting bolt of alt to frame) (1) 2.5 foot 1/0 AWG Battery Ground Upgrade Lead - 3/8" lugs on each end (battery negative (-) to frame) (1) 2 foot 8 AWG Accessory Ground Upgrade Lead - 3/8" lug on one end, and 1/4" lug on the other (battery negative (-) to body) (1) Pair Lead Free Military Style Battery Clamps (1) Pair Rockford Fosgate Platinum plated ring terminals (used to connect stock cables to new clamps - no tools required) All associated hardware Step-by-step instructions with full-color photos The 4 foot 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit sells for $127.95 and the first two cables listed are each one foot longer. The 5 foot 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit sells for $139.95 and the first two cables listed are each two feet longer. [Click on each of the pics to see full size versions.] The complete Kit. The Military Style Clamps make install a breeze. Note the RF ring terminals are utilized here to easily connect the stock cables with no special tools required. So, you also need to run a 1/0 AWG to the rear to your amps? No problem. Note the additional 1/0 AWG power wire attached to the positive clamp - no prob as this clamp was designed to accommodate a total of three large lugs. As with all of our charging system upgrade kits, we offer a Rockford Fosgate ANL Fuse Holder and correctly sized fuse (based on the size of your alt) for the charge lead to protect on-board electronics in the event that the alternator experiences voltage run-away. This is a $50.00 upgrade and that includes the fuse as well as an additional foot of cable for the charge lead so that you can find a nice spot to mount the fuse holder (no you can't tie it to a wiring harness) and make a nice clean run to the battery. So here's the deal. All SMD Members get an additional 10% off all CE Auto Electric Supply Purchases. In lieu of that, THE FIRST FIVE SMD MEMBERS TO PURCHASE THIS KIT WILL GET ONE OF OUR DELUXE AMP TURN-ON RELAY KITS ABSOLUTELY FREE! This is a $29.95 value! Email me directly at [email protected] to order your kit today.
  2. Long awaited, these are finally DONE! I'm REALLY happy with the way these kits came out. As most of you know, I'm a super stickler for details. I tried numerous side post adapters before deciding that none of them met my expectations. So, I modified one to get the results I was looking for and it REALLY works well! [Click on any of the pics to view a larger version.] Here is a pic of the complete kit: Here is what a finished installation will look like (the upgraded charge lead is stacked on the top): Note how you can EASILY fit two 1/0 AWG cables with SUPER THICK lugs on the adapters - one the included upgraded charge lead, the other your main power wire to your amps. As usual, I only use tin-plated OFC cable that meets the American Wire Gauge specification for all of my kits. All lugs are SUPER thick tin-plated copper (about three times the weight of standard lugs). All lugs are crimped with our in-house crimping press and then insulated with our SUPER thick adhesive lined heat shrink tubing to promote a weather resistant connection! The 3 foot 1/0 AWG Side Post Big 3 Kit sells for $100.95 and includes: (1) 3 foot 1/0 AWG Charge Lead - 5/16" lug on each end (1) 3 foot 1/0 AWG Alternator Ground Lead - 3/8" lugs on each end (case / mounting bolt of alt to frame) (1) 2.5 foot 1/0 AWG Battery Ground Upgrade Lead - 5/16" lug on one end, 3/8" on the other (battery negative (-) to frame) (1) 2 foot 8 AWG Accessory Ground Upgrade Lead - 5/16" lug on one end, and 1/4" lug on the other (battery negative (-) to body) (1) Pair Platinum Plated Side Post Adapters All associated hardware Step-by-step instructions with full-color photos The 4 foot 1/0 AWG Side Post Big 3 Kit sells for $112.95 and the first two cables listed are each one foot longer. The 5 foot 1/0 AWG Side Post Big 3 Kit sells for $124.95 and the first two cables listed are each two feet longer. As with all of our charging system upgrade kits, we offer a Rockford Fosgate ANL Fuse Holder and correctly sized fuse (based on the size of your alt) for the charge lead to protect on-board electronics in the event that the alternator experiences voltage run-away. This is a $50.00 upgrade and that includes the fuse as well as an additional foot of cable for the charge lead so that you can find a nice spot to mount the fuse holder (no you can't tie it to a wiring harness) and make a nice clean run to the battery. All SMD Members get an additional 10% off all CE Auto Electric Supply Purchases. Email me directly at [email protected] to order your kit today.
  3. OK, it's no secret that my Charging System Upgrade Kits are expensive. The fact is, that I didn't really design them for the car audio crowd. These kits were designed primarily for the hot rodder that was installing a high output alternator. Obviously, they work equally as well for car audio use, but hot rodders aren't nearly as sensitive to price as car audio consumers are. For those SMD Members that have purchased these kits, you know all too well that they are the best available at any price. So, I did a little number crunching. I can make a stripped down version of these kits and save everyone a few bucks - specifically in the area of battery clamps (the RF clamps are $35 each). You all seem to be primarily interested in the 1/0 AWG kits, so for now, that's what I've focused my efforts on. These kits will include these battery clamps - 1 each for negative and positive: [click to view full size picture] These are lead free military style clamps that can accommodate up to THREE super thick lugs each. Installing these in place of your stock battery clamps will require cutting those off of the stock cables. To that end, each kit will include a pair of (EDIT - oops) RF 4 AWG set screw type ring terminals that you can easily connect these cables to and then bolt those directly to the clamps. From there, these kits will include the exact wire (tin plated FULL SPEC OFC), lugs (SUPER THICK tin plated copper), and hardware (Grade 5 - USA Made) included in the standard Charging System Upgrade Kits. As with all of my kits, these kits will NOT require that you own any specialized tools to install it - just common hand tools and that you can follow full color step by step instructions written in plain English. By changing the clamps, I can offer Top Post 1/0 AWG as follows: 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit - 3 foot long: $115.95 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit - 4 foot long: $127.95 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit - 5 foot long: $139.95 I have not finalized the pricing on the side post kits YET, but will have that soon. I'm going to migrate to a part that will actually make the side post kits cheaper than the top post kits, so stay tuned there. Of course, the normal SMD discount applies for all SMD Members (10%). This kit will be designed to work hand in hand with the proposed Add-A-Battery Kit - HERE . Estimated install time on these kits will be about one to two hours for anyone that is mechanically inclined. Thoughts? HERE is what I'm looking for: 1. What is the kit MISSING? 2. What kind of promo would you guys like to help me launch these kits? IE - You buy it, you review it, you take pics, you post your review and pics up here in the forum and at least one other forum? Talk to me . . . the HMFIC is tuned in and ready to listen.
