    I'll make you a deal. I'll trade you one or both of your pico PSUs that you have for one of my spare M2-ATX PSUs. Let me dig them out and test them, then we'll talk. Sound good?

    I'm not even in this, but I think that's a respectable deal.

    Sounds good, but (just me speaking) that seems like you're giving yourself the short end of the proverbial stick, doncha think?

    If it gets you going on your install, who cares? They're just collecting dust here.

    IIRC, a car's battery hits about 14.4VDC doesn't it?

    A battery will run at 14.4 when the car is driving.

    If he's not using the M2-ATX, then I dont think it will bother him. It will get you going, and he'll get the satisfaction that the thing is finally being used for something.

    I agree.

    I'm not 100% sure about this stuff, I have never ever done research, but my logic is that the alternator puts out the 14.4V. When comes out of the battery after the alternator does its thing is a different story though. The battery is also having to power things like your ECU, Lights, and a few other things, you also have to take resistance into account, so I have to assume that 14.4V drops down.

    I am really not sure. I also think it depends on how many amps the alternator puts out. Currently my Alt puts out about 136 AMPS. Everyday though, when I turn on my car, my PC doesnt start up, because of its dead battery eliminator feature. I am going to upgrade to a 220 AMP Alt to correct this issue. My install is also overboard, I think I can make inspector gadgets car look like sh!+ compared to mine. So I need alot more power. To answer this question, I think I got to get me a volt meter and do testing. Once I get it, I will test from the battery, then test if there is a drop as it makes its way through all the cabling. I will do the tests while the car is on and off.

    OK, my other Pico came in today. As a side note, I got a nice cold air intake and muffler/exhaust put in today as well. I'll add some pix in a few minutes.
