    V Plus Voltage booster??

    Anyone try any of the these? Would using this in conjunction with a fuel pump hardwire kit benefit me when I do my head/cam swap?

    V-Plus Voltage Booster. Your alternator is designed to put out a specific voltage, generally 13.8 volts. The only problem is when there's a greater demand on the electrical system, such as a WOT blast, the alternator falls a little short. The V-Plus is designed to overcome voltage taper at WOT by stepping up the alternator voltage 2.2v. at 70% throttle. Result? More power to your fuel pump and ignition system. Unit plugs in, with no wires to cut or tap into. Includes hardware.

    Also could anyone explain how it works? I dont see how it can step up the voltage at the alternator.

    I run the Casper unit. It does allow the alternator to put out more voltage.

    about 30 min just because you have to get under the car and up to the alternator. thats the only thing that takes so long, the rest is easy.
