    Voltage regulator

    Is there a way to flash the stock regulator. I got the HO in WITH THE RIGHT PULLEY and I still sit at about 13.5 with the car running. Im dipping into the high 11s at the amp terminals full tilt at roughly 2600 watts at .5ohm at idle. If I can get to 14.4+ I would be perfect in any senerio

    Re: Voltage regulator

    what vehicle? some vehicles control voltage through the ECM (think thats right) i read you can bypass this on the newer hondas...but dont know how safe it is to do so

    I understand that, what I'm trying to figure out is if I can get the voltage higher then 13.5 with the car running and nothing turned on.

    Re: Voltage regulator

    It may be controlled by a computer in the car, the ECM maybe. I have the same problem, I charge a 13.5. The computer controls that, so you might need a bypass.

    Re: Voltage regulator

    I read of a bypass for newer hondas that have this "issue"...but it seemed pretty complicated.
