    I have a Duraspark II and Accel Superstock coil that draws power from the original red/green wire to the coil at 9 volts. My car runs well, but after seeing Mustang Steve's diagram (attached), I wonder if I should be concerned with my wiring. My resistor wire is still in place, and my brown...

    Anyone have alternator problems in their newest generation mustang? Im on my third alternator in my 06 GT, the reason is my after-market subwoofers (JL Audio 1000/1 amp), but i would think a capacitor would help.
