One of the last pieces to this puzzle....the Mechman 250a Billettech Alternator. I also installed the new AVBM (adjustable voltage) module. It would have been done a few days ago but it was HOT out, over 112 on Saturday..so i left early. I also had to fully charge the batteries and Dyno the old alternator first. I wanted to outline the difference between the stock shit and the new high output alternator. The video is done and i will upload it either tonight or tomorrow. Anyone think the Rockford Punch 1000.1 did its rated power? I'm not kissing no ass, ill post up the results no matter what they are. Anyway, here is the install pics.

Set all the gains on the amps. With a 3sixty.3, you don't end up turning them up very high at all. They did go up just a smidge from before which was all the way down. I used -10db on the bass and -5 on the mids and -5 on the tweeters. Sounds good! Still havent eq'd or time aligned anything. That is the last thing i am going to do after the seats are in and it's 100% done.

It sucks to pull all my stuff apart, BUT i will say this, i made life easy on myself by planning ahead and making it all easily removable. I knew i was going to have to access all this stuff soon. No problem, it all goes right back together again :)

The punch 1000 is the only amp i ran on the Dyno today. It is the biggest one and will pull the most amperage off the alternator. If it does it's power, it is safe to say the other amps will too. I have tested his Punch 400.2 when i first got the dyno and it did it's numbers, so no problem there. I tested the Punch 1000.1 @ 1ohm with the old alternator, in all 3 modes and then i tested it with the new alternator in all the modes, with and without the AVBM. Youtube video soon!

Finally got the interior back in it...

but before i post the pictures, let me explain a few things.

The seats are dirty, but they ARE getting reupholstered so they are white'er again. In fact he is planning on new bucket seats, which will be SICK IMO. The door panels are back on but i did not have anything to clean up and PROPERLY re-die his arm rests. He got the new cushions for the arm rest but the plastic piece below it is dingy, old and just ugly. It needs cleaning up and to be re-shot. The headliner and fabric closest to the rear window WILL be replaced soon. So you see those little quirks, just don't blame me. I did the system and also reinstalled new panels for him, but there is only so far i can go with it. He will need an upholsterer for the rest of the interior.

Also, one last thing, i STARTED to tune the system today but i kept getting company stopping by. I need to concentrate and not be bothered when i do it. So i left. Went swimming at the pad. LOL - i will try again tomorrow. He picks it up on Monday when he comes home from camping and then i will make the final video of him rolling off into the sunset with it :D

that being said, here is the pics.
