last night i did a half alt delete. what I did is: I buy a small battery charger and remove my serpentine belt. I charge the battery at night . to test my battery range I just put my headlight on for 45 min and my battery drop from 12.4v-12.5v to 12v12.1v about .4v and I know that my commute take 20 min each way and my headlights takes more energy per minute then my commute because i p&g

i just drive to the bank this morning and i immediately feel more power in my acceleration

the bad side is that my cold start idle are a bit higher then before and I was already complaining about that
