130 AMP alternator

This is PG's old car, no? Good to hear that it is still running and still being improved on. I have some bits of info on it here and there, but I'm not sure if it's anything useful.

The 3G is so much better than the 2G. Charging at idle is better, and they seem more reliable.

As for exactly where to get the switched power, I can't help you there, but there are many switched sources to choose from, and you can really just use anything. I think that some people use one of the wires connected to the coil. I had a 940T, but I never did much electrical work on it, so I don't remember how it's laid out.

Let us know how it goes.
Greg
