In the middle of swapping the alternator over to the drivers side to
make room for a 944T intercooler, mounting it (the alt) to the 2B
bracket under my A/C compressor. Looks like I have to use the 4kq/CGT
alternator instead of the 200 20V alt - bummer since the 4kq one is only
90 A instead of 120 A. I went to a local place to have the 4kq
alternator rebuilt and hopefully upgraded to 120 A. They said
Anybody know differently? I am ok with swapping all internals but I
must retain the mounting housing.
I am also trying to get a real handle on electrical component
requirements - any input appreciated. Here is my list of components -
several have different stages of use (ie fans, etc) so any knowledge on
the usage range would be very helpful -
I am very very curious what the usage is for the the Cooling Fan Stage 1
and _especially_ Stage 2...
headlights low 160 W
brights 400W I think
all other lights (dash, tail, parking etc) - ?
Cooling fan (200 20V) Stage 1 - ?
Stage 2 ?
Stage 3 500W I think - luckily never needed so far!
blower motor (off plus 4 settings)
heated seats (6 settings)
stereo 135 W
Motronic ECU ?
forgetting anything major?
thanks a ton!
