    Test after test after test after test hs shown that they offer no real performance gain and those that did afford for an appreciable performance increase to any degree still were not worth the $$ they cost.

    You also have to factor in the alternator. It has to be able to power your electrical system, stereo system, neons, and what not. That would provide just a lil more strain on the alt.

    Yea you lose HP there. Do some other mods first.
    Like a performance exhaust, rather than a glass pack. Headers, cut off the cats.

    Re: Electro Or No ??

    waste of $, waste of time and lastely waste of space on here. if you're ranger is a 4 banger i wouldn't bother wasting any $ for performance, if it's a v6 i wouldn't waste any money on the engine i'd do a 4.6V8 swap and find room for it.



    2006 Bright Island Blue 6s: stock 6 disc in dash, Hertz Hi-Energy 6.5" comps, MB Quart Ref 12", eclipse 5-channel sub amp.

    Car mods: Lowered on Mazdaspeed springs with Koni Yellow shocks, Racing beat front/rear sway bars with AWR end links, LED turn signals, tail lights, front side markers, 18" ADR Cypher rims, 55w HID's in low beam and fogs, 5% tint all the way around. No go fast mods yet...tuning and Mazda6 don't go well together .

    Steve a.k.a. ss3079: So this one lady goes, "These ignorant people who drive around blasting there music, they cant hear emergency vehicles"
    So that set me off, and I said "Well then why do they let deaf people drive?"
