Re: Front Accessory Drive Modifications Reply #15 – August 13, 2019, 09:20:08 AM So ... question for those that have done the 3G upgrade ... hoping you can help me. I unplugged the two connectors from the stock alternator and then per the instructions, out of these two connectors, I cut off the black rectangular one. I was going to clean up the wiring a little and upon removing some wire loom and electrical tape, I found that the two black/orange wires from this connector go back into a single black/orange wire. The instructions want you to put ring terminals on each of these wires and then connect them to the back of the alternator. I have enough length in the harness, so my question is ... can I just cut this wire before it splits into two and then put a single ring terminal to the back of the alternator? I don't see how this would hurt anything, but figured I would ask in the event anyone has experience with this or has wired their 3G up the same way.
