My car is all steel 1974 nova,
5.3 l33 engine with cam ans springs, cam is the compcams thrumper, powerglide, 1.76 with transbrake, converter is a protorque custom for another engine that have 650hps, 4.30 rear gear, with 10.5x28 tires.
What king of cams did you recomend?
what converter did you prefer ?
If you are running the alternator output wire all the way to the back of the car, I would use a 100 amp fuse (or the proper size for your specific alternator) close to the battery. If that wire should ever get pinched, a crash or even a jack or jackstand, that could be a real mess. It won't protect the alternator while the engine is running, unless you also put another fuse up front by the alternator. Heck, in a bad enough crash, the alternator is the last thing I would worry-about.
since the alternator has a built-in voltage regulator. Would it be wise to, at the end of the return cable before it actually back to the battery. Be wise or safe to connect an inline fuse or breaker?I am cautious about this. You even said it in your reply about charging a battery with the EFI hooked up. I do not want any possibilities of the alternator frying the EFI.
