Ok send me one of these things and $200 and I will test it on a dyno with our fit. I honestly think it is total BS and just another intake insert that "tornado's" the air or whatever. Please send cash

Does anyone know if you can use both voltage stabilizer and ignition boost? I plan on buy both from T1R.

I know this is old but it IS a sticky so I guess it is still pertinent.


If one of them is so awesome....... 2 of them would be double bad ass right?

I'm new here but found this thread interesting. I don't want to say that this product is a total scam but as an electrical engineer who designs power supplies for a living (including power factor correction), I see zero reason that a cap will help.

Question: What is the biggest capacitor one could put into a car? Answer: The car battery. The battery does what a cap does but magnitudes better.

I saw a note on power factor correction. I think someone is trying to baffle people with BS here. The power factor would be how well the voltage AC waveform from the alternator matches the current waveform from the alternator. In short....it doesn't matter in a car. Why? The alternator is a current charger that dumps current into the battery. The battery smooths the voltage into a DC. The alternator is a multiphase AC source with rectification.....so the waveform is pretty well smoothed out from the get go.

If the cap is in some critical place where the auto manufacturer has totally screwed up, like maybe at the ECU, perhaps a cap would help. I doubt this is the case. I've worked with plenty of auto suppliers and their engineers are not idiots.

Listen to DOHCtor and do stuff that actually impacts your electrical system:

Ground straps
Underdriven Alternator pulley
Big Charge wire
Re-wound alternator
Bigger battery
Capacitor

Or preferably.... send the money you were going to spend on the stabilizer to me and I will sacrifice a chicken and light some incense while casting a spell on your car remotely.

Should have about the same effect as the stabilizer.

Can you start the incantation for me now, please? I'll fax you the funds.

Maybe this crap is for people who fk with sh1t and cause problems. This kit will help get their sh1t back up and running.
