Gadabout Gonna be putting together my Big 3 Upgrade Kit, starting this weekend. I'm not buying it all at once, but stay tuned, I'll try to get pictures on here when I finally get to it =]

asting Has anyone done this on a mk3 yet? I was all set and ready to do it, but then I got to looking at the stock wire. It's some beefy stuff. Is there any benefit to doing so? I've done it on my cars in the past, I just doubt it would do much on this vehicle.

its not something you have to do but something you do for safety.

also the fuse should be closer to the power source, like when you run the power wire from the bat to the amp the fuse is with in a few short inches from the batt (power source). the fuse for the alt power wire should most likely be done the same way if you choose to do so.

alaskanzx5 fuses are to protect the wire and not the oher electrical parts in the system.

Well I use circuit breakers.

mister_eff Some Big Three installs have a fuse in-between the alternator positive and the battery positive. Is that necessary? Under what conditions would it be necessary?

Also, anybody have pictures of where the alternator positive is on the Focus 2012? How hard is it to reach?

Any pictures in general of where the wire is run so as to avoid radiator/engine? Thanks.

there are some companies that do it but its cheaper to buy the stuff yourself and make your own. just get some good 1/0 gauge wiring and some ends and make your own. its cheaper and you know the products you pick will be of high quality.
