    Hello,

    I believe currently my alternator is 140a ... I however am upgrading it to a 210a alternator with a regulator.

    My question is how will this affect the engine management? Is this going to throw a error up? If it is what will that cause and how will it need resolving.

    Thank you

    Amir

    Wouldn't this be better in the General/Technical section, instead of the I.C.E. section? You may get a few more responses there :thumbsup:

    Only if they're going in for dB competitions. A decent ICE upgrade rarely requires an alternator upgrade. It's about quality not 2kW systems and quality can be easily achieved under 1kW.

    So you'd need in excess of 400amps to run such a system, doubt your 210a alternator upgrade is going to cope!
