    the wire from the alternator to the battery needs a ne inline fuse placed in. bypass the stock fuse block. you could leave teh stock wires hooked up also but it really doesn't matter. the starter is left alone.

    Wow... a lot of noob questions here. Everyone with questions, check out The12Volt.com first. They have calculators, and a lot of good information for starters.
