    Alright, so my 2002 SI (EX in US) has fried 2 ECUs this past Summer. The strange thing is no fuses were ever fried, only the ECU both times.

    TL;DR: skip to the last paragraph... So my romantic Valentine's date with my wife last night was a total flop, battery went out in traffic and I had to push the car off the highway and then get a jump (had to float 1500+ RPM's to keep it on) so I could drive to Walmart a few blocks away...

    Ok, I ordered the Alternator for the car from Ohio Generator today. 140 amps, warrantied for a year and comes with a sheet that shows the alternator will in fact produce and maintain 140 amps, no fake auto zone crap (sorry I work for Oreilly's). I will get pics as soon as I recieve it. Evidently...

    Just put in a bran new Hitachi alternator into my 1991 Mazda Protege 1.8 DOHC. Well, the alternator came out and went in smoothly, but when I started up the car, the belt was squealing. The belt looks in decent shape so I played around with the tension and got on the throttle a bit and once...
