I was interested in how a N* would perform in other cars so I found a site that have links to some wild projects...

I remeber seeing a Northstar in a single engine airplane.

Like the intake cover on the golf.

10V isn't charging. Did you hook up the alternator right? One of the wires has to go through an alternator/battery light for it to charge.

I tricked one of my engine swaps by using a 470ohm resistor.
Make sure its a 5 watt(large)carbon.
Charges just fine now

yeah we put a diode into one of the wires and soldered it to the core... where does this resistor go, lead to? You talking about the brown wire thats supposed to go to the dash? From the alt to where If I dont hook it up right away to the dash..
thanx for that info please explain

mmmm.... I think it's a red wire. It goes to the dash light, which goes to +12. When the alt isn't charging, that light will be lit. I don't think you want a diode in there.

It's the red "L" terminal, which is the same as how mine's hooked up.

well I got a spiffy new regulator in it that requires nothing but a return to bat power wire. Ive got about 300 miles on her this week, more to come soon
