Powering directly from alternator??
I have my car wired via the MAD Electric design. This design runs a 8 guage wire directly from the alternator pin to a power distribution block. You then run all of the high load electric items directly from that point ( In my case I run a fan, water pump, and head lights). There is a little more to the system, but that is the short of it.
The guy over at MAD told me it wouldnt affect the longevity or performance of the alternator. I have a few friends that tell me im basically full fielding the alternator and its going to eventually kill it.
Any have experience with this?
