Default Caspers Electronics VPlus Volt Booster

Hey guys i was wondering if anyone has used or heard anything about this product. Is it worth the 70 dollars? Or what would be the best way to get more voltage to the fuel pump.

Its a 2000 SSEI and the problem is when im riding just cruising and listening to music. I have an aftermarket amp and 2 12inch subwoofers. The car jumps RPMs, but as soon as i turn it off it drives and accelerate fine.

the fuel pump hot wire is better if you want to up the voltage for your fuel pump


you want to consider the Big 3 upgrade....there is a large strain on your alternator, that is what is causing your problem

I thought that the voltage booster would increase the voltage by 2.2 volts under WOT.

What about a higher output alternator? More pricey though.

Volts makes it run, amps is what it draws. Running a bigger alt won't fix his fuel pump problem.

Run the fuel pump NASCAR style. Bypass that relay, get a switch and hook straight up to the batt.IMO
