    Re: good and bad news

    the kinetik 800 under the hood was suggested due to my extremely restricted space for a battery

    Re: good and bad news

    IDK exactly what you are running.....but if its under 1.5-2kw you may not need a new alty....depends on your altys rating....before you upgrate the alternator, new battery and Big 3 is in order....

    Im surprised that your car stayed on also :o

    I don't understand why the car would die. I can remove the battery from the car while it is on and it won't die. It is an 89 cutlass ciera

    My 66 mustang can drive around town with no battery or alt if I kick start it.
