one thing to watch out for. the reason why you get more hp from the pulleys is b/c it slows down the alternator, so when you're at idle ALL of your electronics and a/c are gonna go dim, and slow down a lot. so i'd say if your car has major electronics done to it, i,e, subs, amps, and all that other stuff to stay away from em. you'll also lose power steering (but who turns the wheel while just sitting still?)
this only happens if you have the smaller battery that ships with celica taht dont have power windows or moon roof
I had the smaller battery and my Voltmeter would jump from 11 to 13.5 volts just shifting gears from 30 to 80 mph...
After upgrading to a Sears Diehard Gold Series... my battery stays at a constant 14 volts - even after setting my cars 500 watt sound system blasting my 2 10w3 JL subs for 2 hours straight
Basically - your end results depend on which battery you have installed... since the alternator and the battery are somewhat married to each other [ 03-03-2003, 06:19 PM: Message edited by: isaac ]
