I am a senior in high school, and a novice programmer. I know Java and Python (from my computer science courses), but I also know C# (because the syntax is almost identical to Java).

I am working on learning Objective-C for iPhone coding. And learning C++ for my arduino.

Yes. I added a 160amp alternator - I wired it with 0awg welding cable (the real stuff, not the ebay stuff). I could only afford enough for the posative wiring at the time, but I am going to add 0awg ground wire to at least my engine (for the starter and alternator) and maybe to my chassis, as well.

The reason I asked about the engine bay is because I upgraded from an 80amp alternator to a 160amp alternator.

comment Safe resistance between alternator and battery?
Yeah, I think that chassis wiring is when it is grounded to the chassis and there is only a positive cable.

Thank you for the answer, but in the question I specified that I would prefer not to use resistors.

I do appreciate the answer, but I did the math, and it is not a simple RC circuit. The measured values for what the capacitance of what "the capacitor" should be do not work out to the hypothetical frequency. :(

I will do a little research on this. If it is simply an RC circuit then it should be no problem, but if it is controlled by the computer it will be more complicated. And yes, I could use resistors, but I would prefer not to waste 20watts on running lights - if I don't have to.

comment Which color headlight is the safest?
Well, I am not using a cheep HID kit in a halogen reflector. I am using legitimate projector and high quality, OEM parts (except for the actual bulbs). I think that the first point you make is really regarding the use of HID bulbs in reflectors. As for your second point I did not know about that, and I am very glad I reached out - so I can learn things like that.
