    Summit. It was quite a bit more than the AC Delco factory replacement on RockAuto, but not much more than if I would have done the 140 amp truck upgrade. This one pushes 175 amps, definitely overkill but meh, it's just money

    Went and picked this up from the local USPS yesterday.

    You may need a friend to help preferably one with small hands and the grip of a gorilla.

    To make it easy I used a dremil and enlarged the holes a little to give some wiggle room.

    Alternator installed, no more falling flat on startup or when the fans kick on, and no more flickering lights. Can't even make this one drop under 13.5 full load. Next, steering rack...

    So when they say a kit is Plug and Play I call

    Just about finished with the Racetronix double pump kit installation and holy crap that was a chore! No instructions, no diagrams, a lot of wires, and a whole lot of connectors that had me scratching my head for a little bit! Dual pumps are wired and mounted onto the pump bracket and wiring is nearly done. You'd think it would be easy when you had a pre-existing Racetronix Hotwire kit installed and think to yourself, "Hey it couldn't be that bad right because they just doubled up on the hotwire kit right?" No where was it mentioned you have to resplice grounds, create new grounds, have maybe an extra wire or two from the kit itself and maybe an extra wire or two from your left over factory harness! Oh and you have to re-pin a factory connector to the Racetronix harness connector after converting back from the original Racetronix hotwire kit connector! Ok I'm done. That was a pain in the rear! Pictures soon!

    Tore in the 00 Vert yesterday. Finally got the entire coolant system flushed and cleaned out. Only took 18 flushes and 2 large bottles of cleaner over 3 days to do so. Also found some quite shocking issues and some relief with the interior. Kinda like it's saying welcome to the Vert life....

    This is from the Passenger seat, that rust is from the seat bracket. I had to persuade the seat to move forward with a 3lb BFH and "love taps" to get it to slide forward and still ended up using a cutoff wheel and cut the seat out. Damn nuts rounded off even with using an extractor. I have to replace one stud and I'm just going to find new nuts. Drivers side was easier but the seat motor is dead so that's on the parts list as well.



    So I knew the carpet is getting shit canned so cutting it open wasn't any heartburn for me to do. But it did get me some relieve. Only found light surface rust on the floor pans.







    Also found someone's prior "fun" activities that I'm glad I tore into the car to get rid of. And who in the hell loses 12 damn lighters? Seriously I found 12 lighters jammed under the center console and a nice bowl of change for future part purchases.




    Making a To Do list for the car and it is adding up fast....

    Oh I researched! I knew what I was getting myself into when I ordered the kit because of the complaints from the many that Racetronix does not provide any kind of support or feedback whatsoever! So busted out a bunch of wiring diagrams and ohm'ed out a few wires. It's not bad once the pieces start falling after a couple of weeks of research. It is plug and play....once you build the correct plugs

    Insurance is still a scam. He told me his quote was actually higher than the dealer even with a used headlight and I should work it out to drop off with them. Contact dealer and they tell me the insurance quote is $700 less than theirs. Told them I was gonna need them to hold on cause, I already got a $1000 deductible and the adjuster had not only just lied to me, but has taken over a week to do anything with the claim. I wont settle for that BS

    I just got a Turn-1 rack. It's pretty nice. My outgoing one was obviously old (original from a 98), so the improvement may actually be just the steering being put back to "normal." But, at the very least, they re-build a factory rack to good specs.
