I thought about doing that when I get the money. How do you like yours? I was going to do the Mean Green starter too. (since I sat in a water hole for 20 minutes, the starter hasn't acted right)I run a mean green alt
The mounting tabs are different and so are the part numbersIs there a difference in alts of a 4.2 over the 4.0 conversion ??
That's basically the Big 3, as it relates to car audio, too.
Q: How do I upgrade the Big 3?
A: first, disconnect your battery's negative terminal and get the stock wiring out of the way. Scrape away the paint and drill the hole for your connection of the larger wire, or connect it to the stock grounding point. Make sure it is touching bare chassis metal and not any spot with paint. Secure the new wire to the chassis and reconnect the vehicle's stock chassis ground. Do not reconnect the negative battery terminal yet. Look for a terminal post connected to the alternator. It should have a wire connected that leads to the positive terminal of the battery.
Disconnect the stock alternator-to-battery positive post and connect it to the post again with the new wire added. Run the wire through a fuse that should match the max amperage of your wire. From the fuse, connect the wire to the positive terminal on your battery leaving the stock wiring connected when you're done. Now find a big bolt on the engine. Make a new hole to connect this wire to. Run the wire from the hole to one of the mounting posts for the alternator or to a bolt on the engine block. Reconnect the negative battery terminal. Now you're done.
