Many rods and customs are getting high-amp alternators to help power stereos and other electronic accessories. Those powerful alternators need adequate wiring, so American Autowire offers a High Amp Alternator Installation Kit. The kit provides 10 feet of large 8-gauge power wire with a fusible link for circuit protection and a pre-installed ring terminal. It also includes the necessary connector and wires for GM SI-series three-wire alternators (the kit can also be used on one-wire alternators), as well as an alternator terminal boot and other terminals and connectors. For more information, contact American Autowire at (800) 482-WIRE; www.americanautowire.com.

The latest FlameThrower coil from PerTronix is a high-voltage E-Core design that yields an incredible 60,000 volts. The special heat sink design, made from aircraft 6063 T5 aluminum, efficiently transfers heat-optimizing energy output, allowing the coil to operate with no heat degradation. The housings are black anodized for increased corrosion resistance, the coils are vacuum potted for longevity, and have brass primary terminals and a precision-machined, high-tension male terminal for a snug coil wire fit. Available in three primary resistances-3.0, 1.5, and 0.45 ohm-HV coils are compatible with most points-type and electronic ignitions.
