    Hi guys.

    Currently doing a ICE install in my car and just wanted to know what the amp on the alternator was?

    Sticking another battery in the boot to power the amps..

    Cars a 2004 2.0 TDI DSG with BKD engine.

    Cheers :D

    You can also find out the amps by the vin number.

    A quick search on Ekta will tell you what is fitted.

    Thanks for the info guys - I'll take a look at the alt in the morning!

    But if anyone has ETKA and would check, I'd really appreciate it and could PM you the vin to make it easier!

    Cheers
