Received my kit yesterday, and fitted it up this morning, took a couple of hours to do from start to finish including removing old standard unit. 

Everything bolted up perfectly and lines up spot on, great quality and an excellent upgrade for the electrical system ready for any added extras down the road. 

Personally I found the best course of action for fitment is to drop the old unit off through the gap between the radiator shroud and the power steering lines etc, and have the extension bracket mounted to unit not fully tightened, that way you can wriggle stuff around when lifting the new one up through the gap, hardest bit, and part that illicits the most cursing of engineering design etc. Is the placement of the lower pivot bolt, you can either see it, or you can get a hand in there to fit it, Never both! Once bottom bolt is in the rest is easy as. 

Electrical system is now a lot more stable and also a bit quieter on the belt noise level with the new pulley too, so I will be recommending this kit to all of the local jdm nut bags and passing them the info/links etc.

Yep, 100% agree, ive only recently got my car back from the workshop so haven’t done a heap of driving but I’ve already noticed the electrical system is better, before with lights on and stereo on I would see a drop in voltage and that was only running one fuel pump. I’m now running three pumps, no issues, no volt drop.
Very happy customer here.
But I didn’t fit it, I had the workshop fit it.

3 fuel pumps? jeebus I'd hate to have your bloody fuel bill hahahaha, 2 questions... why 3 pumps? and secondly are any of them a "drop-in" upgrade that aren't as loud as a rotary13B sitting in your boot?

I might look at doing a pump and reg upgrade in the future but don't want a massively loud thing resonating in the wagon, so I'm looking for recommendations of an in-tank minimal fuss type of thing, any suggestions?

Fuel system was done by DVS Tuning, radium surge tank with twin walbro 460’s staged and another walbro in the main tank feeding the surge tank.
It’s unbelievably quiet, I’m very happy with it. Supports my 500kw and is good for substantially more should I wish to pursue more power in the future.
This is why I upgraded the alternator

I'm the same, having issues since going twin walbro 460L

Kit should be on the way so over nearly double the amps plus 27 years younger should help

I got my kit last week, simple to fit and very nicely made. Certainly a much better option than bespoke jap units, I got a brand new Bosch 140a delivered for $223.

Anyone have to do a power cable to support the extra 70a due to bigger alternator ?

mine already had much thicker cable than standard due to the car having a uber-ridiculous stereo system in it when i got it, but can buy 200amp rated cable  10mm thick in super cheap which is about $8-10 a metre that'll be more than up to the task, then go to an electrical wholesaler or battery shop for the crimp on ends

Just fitted a rat32r kit with an alternator he supplied. Very nice kit and straight forward instalation. Idle voltage has gone from 14.2v to 14.45v. The Attessa light is staying off now, so the only remaining issue is the ABS.

Would it be possible to see a pic of an RB spec Mitsubishi Alternator next to the LS Mitsy one please .

I'm very interested in this kit but just curious to see if the LS one is larger in diameter compared to the Nissan supplied one .

Mine would be for an R33 spec RB25DET .

Thanks in advance , cheers Adrian .
