Aren't some silly ideas scoffed at by the educated?

are you trying to say the educated can't also be ignorant? it would appear as though they can be synonomous at times...

anyways i just get tired of all the negative air a lot of these threads get... but i guess that's just human nature to need some sort of turmoil and drama...

If they are educated about the topic at hand, ignorance, by definition would be excluded. So how educated are you when it comes to automotive electrical systems?

I'd actually really like to do this... any chance you could reload the pictures? they're not working for me...

Wonder if this will help with my head lights or fan seep of blower lowering slightly at idle, then returning to normal speed?

No. Doesn't store enough energy to run these things for even a second.

ok so im a little new, but i have done alot of research on this and talk to a&j racing about the voltage stabilizer, and what you pretty much described is an ignition booster, but you hook it to the ignition fuse. it seems more likely to give better performance by connecting it to the ignition fuse, but you can run both in conjunction and get best results. what do you guys think? think that it wired under the dash to the ignition fuse would help or give better spark?

It's appears to be just a glofiried noise filter like what you would hook up to the + feed of a car stereo, or am I wrong here? I know the ECU drops down voltage to 5V inside to feed out to the engine sensors. Noise in the incomming 12V line effects the drop down to 5V that dramatically inside the ECU? Wouldn't the DC to DC converter inside the ECU have circuitry to gaurd against in-rush and current ripple on the main 12V source? Those units on the market with the clear cases and LED's just look like extra added bling for the engine compartment. If your going to make such a device, I gotta believe you would get the same filtering effect by cramming it under the dash out of site an hooking it across the main fuse board that all your interior power and ECU feed thru.....

Holy Thread Resurrection!

Go back and read the whole thread, and then talk to someone knowledgeable about ignitions who _doesn't_ sell these things.

Default Kong is just Kong Tai Wah !

[QUOTE= if using smaller capacitors (say 1000 microfarad) with higher voltage ratings, and the result would be equally ineffective.

In any case, it's a lot of effort to put into a problem that doesn't exist![/QUOTE]

That is soooooooo obvious !
Kong Tai Wah = BS (That's the Honest-to-goodness translation)

An engineer cannot spell capacitor correctly ? and numerous other component names as well.... BS man, BS

It's just BS. The wires between the components and capacitors will pick up any noise anyway. All the components that need filtering already have them on their boards. It's a waste of time and money, just like the ground-wire systems, vortex intakes, and engine oil additives.

These cars aren't perfect - lots can be modded and improved. Just not these areas. Alternators have perfectly reasonable voltage regulators.

Hi ... I'm new here. I've read your article. quite interesting. But I can't see the pictures. Mr. Kong, can you send me the pictures.

Thanks.

All of the important sensors run off of a regulated 5 volts from the ecu so this will have no effect on them.
