Seems like a waste of money to me. There is already a voltage regulator built into the alternator.

If your alternator is producing 14V then forget it... If you are running a high power stereo... get some Phoenix Gold Capacitors... they'll do the same thing but in a better way.

the idea behind it is sort of like a CAP.....so the asian sensation is right on the money for sure. but honestly it is a waste of money.

Yeah it's like putting a bandaid on your electrical system because you have a problem and can't figure it out, and probably doesn't work anyways. BTW I thought BMW's ran like 8v or something? I always heard that you shouldn't jumpstart them with another running car because of that. *shrug*

1984 318i 5-spd that's not currently registered... project car.

1998 Subaru Legacy Sedan

1996 Nissan Maxima is the girlfriend's car that was glad to meet somebody who knew what "routine maintenance" was.

nope 12v.......nothing wrong with jumping them with another car so long as you do it correctly.
