Boost Your Mopar’s Electrical System with Powermaster Alternators At Summit Racing

The addition of powerful audio systems to race electronics and lighting, can take your ride to a whole new level. However, it’s important to remember that with great power comes great responsibility, especially when it comes to your vehicle’s electrical system.

One crucial component that often gets overlooked is the alternator. This small but mighty device is responsible for providing the electrical power needed to keep all your accessories running smoothly.

But here’s the thing – if your vehicle’s electrical load exceeds the amperage capacity of your alternator, you’re asking for trouble. That’s why it’s essential to choose the right-size alternator for your vehicle.

Luckily, Powermaster has come up with a pretty simple method to help us avoid such nightmares. All you need to do is make a list of all your vehicle’s electrical components and accessories. This includes everything from your audio system to your race electronics and lighting.

Once you have this comprehensive list, the next step is to determine the amperage draw for each item. Then add up the amperage draw for all your accessories, and voila, you have the total draw or load that your alternator needs to handle.

But here’s the catch – you need to select an alternator that delivers more amperage at idle than the total load. Good news is Summit Racing Equipment carries Powermaster’s full line of alternators for your Mopar including Street, High-Amp, and XS Volt alternators.

Why is this important? Well, when your engine is idling, it’s not producing as much power as it does when you’re cruising on the highway. So if your alternator can’t keep up with the demand at idle, then you’re setting yourself up for disappointment.

So as you are building your Mopar or adding some powerful accessories to it, remember this process. Once you have the total amps needed, head over to Summit Racing Equipment’s website and find the correct Powermaster alternator with the proper amperage for your ride. If you have any other questions, the experts at Powermaster are standing by ready to help.
