it'll just drain your battery at a faster rate. you're a/c will also be adversely affected. same goes if you have a sound system in your ride.
a capacitor basically goes inline with the flow of electricity. And anytime the power is being taken away from whatever it's supplying due to (in this case your engine at idle) it simply takes the energy it has stored over time and releases it so the power after the capacitor doesn't change from the usual power supply.i_krayzie_i said:what is a capacitor and how much would that cost?
whoa dude u need to chill and yeah i have a 1000watt system and i dont want to see my lights dim or my battery die on me and that is why i am interested in the capasitor and id like to know where to get one and how much id be payingPreludeSI said:you guys are idiots. I don't know if it's different for the 5th gen ludes but i have the aem pulleys for my 4th gen. First of all, there's no a/c pulley. mine came with the powersteering and alternator pulleys. Second of all, who the hell would pay 200 dollars for them?! i paid 85 for mine, new, with belts and everything from landspeed. You don't need a capacitor, that's a waste of money. Don't be a bitch about seeing your headlights dim a little at a stop light...you can barely notice it. I have a big system in my car too, and i'm not worried that i'll drain my battery. The powersteering is barely affected. I don't even notice the difference when i'm going like half a mile per hour trying to get into a parking spot. as for power gains, i couldn't tell you how much they added because i installed my clutch and flywheel at the same time. It definately is a LOT faster though (probably mostly due to the flywheel and non slipping clutch).
i dont know what planet you live on, aem pullies are $135 or lessLucke said:pullies are only really needed if you're going to race a lot. the tests done on various cars only added an average of 2.3 hp (if i remember correctly). when you spend over $200 for that little bit of a gain, it doesn't seem worth it. well thats my opinion at least.
