    I was drunk and had the radio going. I was overconfident in my batteries and it died. Had to jump start it and that was that. Ended up swapping the stocker back in at 6am the next morning in my drawz so I could go to work

    Edit: Nope, didn't get hot. I think I killed the regulator.

    WOW. That really *****. It makes sense though. It should be a lot of stress on the alt to charge up 3 dead batteries.

    There is only 1 battery now. I can't change my sig without severely modifying it. I have the stock alt with a G31 blue top in the trunk. Alpine 6x9s are out. Soundstream 6x8s up front now. CD changer is out.

    Re: H/O Alt Opinions!

    Didn't read page two, but have you found out how much to repair the excessive? And don't know what your draw is, but he may be able to upgrade that one while it's in for repairs. But for $100, I'd get it anyway and either flip it or keep it for a spare.

    Well that is even scarier then. Now I know why dominick kept telling me to make sure you have your battery charged before you start the alternator...had no idea it would be that devastating.

    Meh, it had lived a good life. I wasn't surprised when it died.

    FWIW, no I have not looked into getting the EA fixed. I'm lazy. Buying the Iraggi will let me put it off a little longer lol.

    Re: H/O Alt Opinions!

    Nothing wrong with a stock case alt. For some vehicles the only way to go bigger then a rewind in a stock case to have one machined. DC did a 390xp that bolted on in place of the AC on my mini van. And yes you pay a premium for that stuff.

    I can understand why some people wpuld want a custom machined case.
    Your lucky. Dc said they couldn't help me out with my jetta. Guess they don't touch foreign cars with custom installs

    Re: H/O Alt Opinions!

    Dc power are beautiful as it gets, but you get way more for your money with Iraggi.

    Dc was 655 shipped for a 270 for me.
    Iraggi was 520 for a 320 amp for me.

    I don't care about a pretty alt that no one sees.

    especially on your Subaru. Isn't the alternator tucked away on the side?

    What I'm saying is you used a 99-04 chevy alt anyways. I would have asked for that specifically and not told them it was for a jetta.
