    Mechman 225 amp alt in Saturn :D

    Alright,

    The Mechman 225 amp'er for the stock location got installed successfully today. Even though there was some slight difficulties with the fitting, Mechman responded lightning-fast to the situation and custom-made me a bracket to make things work for me and it was a perfect fit. I got it installed and turned on the satty and it held a solid 14.6V and the test-drive was great and held above 14.3V the whole time (the AC-position alt was off for the test-drive...and no equipment was in the car..just the HU and a pair of comps ..yea, its painful)...amp dyno'd at about 153 amps at idle and 243 amps max

    But here are demz picz...enjoy..

    See ya stock alt...







    The bracket...

    4 power+ 4 ground runs of 1/0-gauge to rear
    152.1 @ 40Hz legal, certified...just getting started.

    i hate alt installs, always some bracket mod needed or some bolt that is too short, or a belt that is too long/short or some tensioner that has to be moved

    I actually really enjoyed it...the new bracket was perfect and was just a minute to install

    It was the power steering that was a huge %$#@ of the day......lots of cursing going on during that
