you do have those amps or not anymore?
adding a sense wire is good for people with aftermarket stuff because it follows the load better. the stock alt has barley enough to power the stock load at idle, so if you didnt upgrade you didnt change anything. the battery really doent help because you are using the power from it faster than the stock alt can refill it. those monster alts are a gimmick sometimes because the poorly designed ones have the same idle output as stock so watch for that. the caps arent real necessary either. for a moderate system all you need is good wires and a good starting battery, but you need a bigger alt to refill the power the system takes
