    fuse at or above what your alternator's rated amperage is. I like ANL fuses wafers are easy to see big fat connections and large enough to prevent arcing.

    Depending on your year model civic and what trime you should be good between 100-150 amp fuse... normal 8th gen 100 amp, Si 150 amp... actually 120 amp is ideal, but good luck finding that

    So do you fuse at your alternators rating or your wires rating?
