    !!!my Big 3 Upgrade A Success!!!

    Heres Pictures Of My Big 3 Upgrade It Was A Success. It Took Me About 3 Hours To Do Because I Also Changed My Starter, Add Wire Loom, And Wired Digital Battery Terminals!

    The Specs:
    1) Optima Yellow Top Battery (advanced Auto Parts, 2 Yr.. Free Replacement Warr.)
    2)stinger Battery Terminals (ebay:hifisoundconnection)
    3)wire Loom
    4) 0 Awg Guage Wire

    The Top Post Are My Big 3, I Just Added Onto The Exsiting Alternator And Ground Wires. The Factory Oem Wiring Is Still Bolted On The Side Terminals. I Have A 150 Amp Fuse Near The Battery End, Which Is Not Pictured; 150 Because My Alternator Is A 140 Amp. I Have 3 Amps Im Running. One Kenwood For My Interior Speakers, 2 Rockford Fosgate Type Rf Mono Amps, Powering 2 Kicker Solobarics (1 Amp Per Speaker).the Blue Wire In The Pic. Is An 8 Guage For My Kenwood, And The Red Wire With The Rectangular Fuse Is For My 2 Rockfords, The Power Is Distributed Through A Tsunami Capacitor!!!!

    Overall It Was A Great Success. And Very Easy To Do. Still A Slight Voltage Drop But Not That Significant And Most Of The Time My Lights Are On, Blower Motor Is On, And Sound System Is Turned Up. No Lights Diming At All When I Come To A Stop Light.

    I Would Highly Recommend This To Any One Thinking Of Getting A System!! Or If U Have A System And Ur Lights Dim. It' S A Way Cheaper Fix Than Buying A Higher Amp Alternator!!!!

    Sorry About The Picture Quality. Pictures Where Taken With My Camera Phone!!!

    !!!!!!!!!!let Me No What Yall Think!!!!!!!!!!

    I, too, upgraded my wires. I have almost 0% resistance between my alternator and battery. I installed 2/0 gauge wiring. Its a little bigger than 0 gauge.
