this is a problem

you can run a smaller 2j race alternator

or as i did

keep the down pipe at 2.5" [rest of exhaust is 3"]

wrap with lava wrap
keep the turbo blanket fresh

finally had to lower output
to be able to press it hard on track day

started at 394whp now track tune is 330whp
[except for drag tune on e85/93 oct mix still at 360]

1 session at AMP
and the wiring looked like this

since the restore and lower hp at the wheels
with the new lava wrap and better turbo blanket

i have been able to run it hard
even in the 90 degree weather

with no overheating ,detonation or fried wires

so far so good



the new 2jr exhaust manifold angles the turbo away from the alternator
reducing much of the heat problem

a heat shield for the alternator was tried by some
with limited success

Nice... I've been toying with getting a B15 SpecV project car. They're cheap and get plenty of love/support it appears.
