electric driven alternator is it possible?
all right so here is my idea because im always trying to get creative and think of innovative ways to do stuff. Im currently starting an LSX swap on my cobra and am planning to go carbed, manual steering, no a/c, and electric waterpump, so the only thing i will need to drive off my serpentine belt will be an alternator. well i was at work bored and started thinking, they make electric motors that drive waterpumps as a cheap alternative to an electric water pump, what if i just used a similar dc motor to drive my alternator and then i could mount my alternator anywhere in a remote location like perhaps in a box in the trunk with the battery. I know it seems not to make since at first to drive what makes your electricity with electricity, but really the battery will drive the dc motor, and the dc motor will spin the alternator via a belt, and the alternator will in turn recharge the battery.
