    The Easy Performance V-Booster safely raises the voltage of your factory alternator system by .6 volts. The stage 2 kit raises alternator voltage by 1.2 volts. Installs in seconds by plugging inline with your alternator's voltage reference line. Innovated, designed and manufactured by Easy & ZZPerformance.  Works well paired with the Easy Performance Alt rewire kit.


    New version has better soldering. Fixes the erratic voltage issues on certain cars. Now compatible with Regal and other 3 wire applications!

     

    Benefits include:

    • Brighter headlights
    • More power from your factory stereo or aftermarket amps
    • Increased voltage to your fuel pump
    • Ensures the coil pack operates at it's full potential
    • Better heated seat performance
    • Improve rear defrost performance
    • Include color instructions
    • Installs in 60 seconds

    Stage 2 kit raises voltage in some cars to over 15 volts. Many aftermarket amps and radios such as Sony/Rockford will not operate at this voltage. OEM electronics will not always function correctly. No damage will occur but we recommend the stage 2 kit for race applications only.

    Solid state regulators, as those used in nearly all cars since the 1980’s, that use a pulse-width-modulated field control system can also create a whine in the sound systems. Regulator-caused whine differs from the alternator-caused whine in that the intensity and pitch of regulator-induced noise changes with changing current load at a constant engine speed. Changing the electrical system load won't change alternator whine but it will change regulator whine. How this may relate to the Alternator Voltage Booster (AVB) is installing the AVB changes the operational conditions of the solid state regulator. Increasing the output voltage will change the duty cycle the regulator is commanding to sustain the voltage. This in turn can effectively change the emergence of regulator whine. While the AVB may affect or reduce regulator whine, the effect is dependent on a lot of uncontrolled factors in the car and sound system. I would not go as far as to make any broad claim that the AVB will reduce noise in the sound system. It may show improvements in reducing sound system noise in some applications and have no effect in others. Also, changing the power supply voltage to a sound system can alter how the system handles the voltage ripple in its power supply circuitry. For some systems, increasing the supply voltage can improve the internal power supply’s ability to filter out voltage ripple. This will be highly dependent on the design sound system’s power supply circuitry.

    <p>I just installed this and it actually does make the windows move faster and my monte carlo gets 1-2 mpgs more. I was very surprised at that.</p>
    Totally Worth It

    <p>This is a simple yet must have upgrade!! Something so cheap made my windows go up and down way faster, acctualy has a higher quality feel to them! All lights in the interior are brighter! Even the little lights by the shift boot, i can acctually see them now! Stereo works a little better and is clearer, start-up is healthier/smoother/quicker, my HID's in my headlights warm up quicker and are brighter, shifts even feel noticibly smoother right away! System voltage is constantly very high, very pleased with this purchase. Will be buying the alternator rewire kit to go with it! Took 30 seconds to install.. I drive a 2002 Monte Carlo SS</p>
    Does what it says!

    04 impala ss- takes a minute or less to plug in, boosts everything! if u have heated seats, it dramatically improves them. sometimes gotta turn it down to low! lol
    IT WORKS !!

    Takes all of 2 minutes to install and it really does raise the voltage. I have a 2003 Monte ss 3.8
    Would this work?

    Just got mine, and it works wonders.



    I was wondering, though, what if I bought about 4 more and connected them all and then installed it? Would I see some insane amount of voltage? Obviously it could fry some of the stuff, but I would like to know at what point does it become a hazard?
