The capasitor is a really good idea.  You can pick them put at HAM fest for $3 for 2.  Install them yourself.
Can\'t afford a high priced performance car?  Then build one!

Actually the capacitor that I am speaking of can be found usually only at car stereo shops. This is a link to show what i am talking about. I wish these things ran $3. I would be a happy happy man.  :D  It is always a smart option to run one of these when you run alot of power. They go inline on your power cable and store up the power so when your amps need it they feed on it instead of the battery/alternator.

Has anyone tried an MSD APS Alternator on their ZX2? They have a modular alternator pully system. It like having a wide selection of ODP's to choose from. Granted I think only 2 of the pulleys they offer would work with a zetec. I am not sure which one we would use with the Zetec. But it is a modular mounting system as well.

But all of the MSD alternators are over 100 amps as far as I can tell.

Consider getting a custom one made.  I had a 200 amp one made and had only very small mods to make it work in the Z.  I had to weld on a sleve to make it butt up against the support where the top screw goes in, and I had to use a longer belt.

Solved alot of issues for me.
yeah, it\'s an Escort!

When you put  a cap in , your  just putting in another accessory for the alternator to charge , thus straining the stock alternator . You need to upgrade the alternator amperage and a really fresh battery . Capacitors are for compitition use , or for when the car is off ........(I'm not even gonna get into how batteries work )
