my car turned 221,000 miles yesterday
(orig engine and tranny and runs great)
heres the deal:
by the end of this summer there are a few things i want to do to my bonnie, right now im adding four H3 Xenon fog lights (55W each bulb). thats going to be drawing alot of juice from the alt. also i will be getting a new head unit (Clarion DXZ 835MP) and a decent size sub put in. i was wondering if i will be needing a bigger alternator to power these beasts (esp when they are all on at the same time) ? dont right now we have a 45 amp alt ??? (im guessing). i will also be adding another high speed fan to the radiator (it gets hot towing my goodies over the mountains
i plan on getting the intake manifold ported and the throttle body ported as well and was wondering what the pros/cons were? say hp and torque and in what ranges they are in, fuel economy, etc.
if anyone has anything to say feel free to respond!!
ps. im taking my car to a "Dyno Day" at a local dyno shop to get dyno'd for 40 bucks! ill update you guys when i do it and post a link and you will be able to see the hp, torque, fuel/air ratio through every rpm along wiht he cool graphs.
