That's badass! And also sorry. lol This is at times my personal blog.I did try to catalog all of the technical stuff here though (lots of lessons learned and changes to improve). Unfortunately it's diluted with other BS.Just finished reading this entire thread all 3,539 +1 posts!! I have absolutely no regrets work get kinda slow...
Oh yeah! That's a good one!! That's a throwback at this point lol. I miss the sh!t talkingNow ya gotta read the 4g63 swap thread .... lol JK
Awesome pretty cool stuff you got going on for sureWith a capacitor you are thinking amperage/capacity, not voltage (more POWA!).
With a 14v battery, charging at 16v it’s like running a “boost a pump” all the time for the fans, fuel pumps etc.
Fuel pumps flow more at 16v than 14v. Look up some flow charts on fuel pumps. They usually chart 12v and 13.5v and you can just estimate what another 2.5v would do
Some guys have posted that they have a wild setup on their 12v battery on a Hobbs switch that kicks in a potentiometer type setup so that when they hit boost, the alternator kicks out 15-16v to boost the fuel pump and coils voltage. You can’t do that all the time or will melt the 12v battery but for short burst, it’s okay.
Oh and my first LS alternator was used on eBay and lasted 3 years on 16v with diodes. The potentiometer is just cleaner and adjustable.
On my son’s car, I plan to set his alternator around 14.2’ish volts on a 12v battery.
On my mr2 build, I haven’t decided yet. Probably 12v battery and the same 14’ish but I like the idea of kicking it higher in boost to give the fuel pump and coils some extra kick.

Just wanted to check in like an absentee owner of a small business trying not to be absent to make everyone nervous.
Cars coming along great as usuall I see.
Already have a rolling chassis, wrap color picked out and a core motor and trans. Lot to buy and do yet though.4G63 MR2 would be pretty sweet, definetly should do a build thread on here for it if you do.
