electrical hookup needed
hi all new to the game, i built a smacks booster, tested pulling 30amps or more, melted my 30 amp fuse case. guess i used to much mix the fist time around, live and learn. My main question here is where do i pull power from?
I installed it on a 2003 Chevy S-10 2.2L engine.
First try i wired it from a 25 amp fuse, right outa the fuse relay box, was a mistake. it lasted 5 mins. at the most, melted my in line 30 amp fuse case.
Booster was pushing 30 amps at startup. to much mix/2 teaspoons and about a quart of distilled water.

I started with 1/8 tsp (approx 6-7 amps) 1/8 tsp more (approx 10 amps) finally 1/8 tsp more and I'm at about 15 amps, sure doesn't take much to push the amps.

i'm all hooked up, checked when hot and running 15 amps, think i'll take it up to 20 and top off the tank for a mpg check. did the 02 mode on the upstream sensor, no foul drilled out. crossin my fingers for some kind of mpg difference. at the moment i'm at 24 to the gallon. i will post when i get the difference.

I use a seperate battery (Deep Cycle) and a high output alternator. That way any negative results dont leave me standing on the side of the road.
