    Electrical for saz 3500 v.1

    Hey guys, i recently bought a saz 3500 v.1 and am looking to upgrade some of my electrical, i currently have a stock alternator because i bought a 350 amp alternator from bnr parts off ebay and it was totally pathetic, did no where near what it should have been doing, but i guess you get what you pay for. So i'm looking into a 270 amp mechman alternator. Will that be enough? I currently have a xs power d3400 under the hood. Could i get a d3100 and run it with the 3400? Or would i need another of the same battery? Ill be running the amp at .5. Ill have 2 runs of 1/0 for the power and ground to the amp So i know i need some pretty hefty electrical. The big three is done and i have a voltage meter to monitor. What voltage should the amp be at, at all times? Like what is the lowest i should drop? Thanks for all the help guys.

    Get the mechman 270 and add 2 g31 batts and u should be good..a couple extra runs of 1/0 wouldnt hurt ....i run lil more power than that and drop to 13.9 ..adding more runs soon wana stay above 14

    You can also go Tenney Alts. A lot cheaper and lifetime warranty. Id do a 270+ alt and 2 c&d 102ahs or 2 Deka 9a31s. 8a31s if you can fit them.

    Also plan on 2 + and 2 - runs of 1/0 throughout



    Sold To: Epic0318, Alpine-Accord Bought From: JL Audio, SPLAudio, JS UltimateSounds, ShoelessJake


    This guys a winner...
