Hello all! I own a 1984 MB 300D Turbo and i am into car stereos, which means i at times need to pull some extra amperage from my alternator and my 55a is NOT cutting it.
I recently contacted Nathan from Excessive amperage and he said he would be willing to modify a typical 55/65a 300D alternator into a 200a HO alternator. And along with the alternator upgrade i was wanting to add on 1/0 guage power wire from the alternator to the battery and grounds etc. so i wont fry the stock wires. Everything was fine until i purchased a bosche 65a alternator and i found this:
the red circled part is for the wiring harness hookup. Now my questions are:
1. Where does this lead to (the harnessed wires) and is there anything between these wires and the battery (fuses etc.?)
I was thinking about i guess having the guy mod my alt so it would just be a single positive terminal which would make my life a whole lot easier. easier because i would just have to run a fused power wire from the alternator to the battery positive.
2. IS there any danger in doing what i typed above?
thanks so much for your help :)
