    @capsat what is the default / ff alternator capacity in amps for cultus 2001 carby

    Will the magazine line 50 amps alternature put more load on the engine? How much more approx. in percentage and how much will fuel economy be decreased.. just asking for educated guesses...

    Guys, will the fitting for a 'Suzuki Alto' alternator work for 'Cultus'. If so, I have a 65amp alternator from a 95 Honda City (i guess) that I had in my alto, when running a heavy sound system with HIDs etc.. let me know if it works for you.

    i don't think it will be very significant, load on engine will increase only when you use a heavy appliance.

    @margallar @capsat so if I install a bigger alternator in my cultus and put a bigger battery and put good grounds. Will I be able to improve ignition and spark plug firing. I want to put a bigger voltage ignition coil, what change will I have to do to the capacitor behind the distributor cap? lets say the factory ignition coil is 20000 volts, if I put something around 40,000 or 100,000 volts ignition coil would I need to change that capacitor behind distributor that mechanics call CDI

    My ultimate aim is to increase the spark plug gap as much as possible and for that theory says to have a stronger spark that can jump the extra length. So I need to install bigger ignition coil to avoid mis fires and also avoid difficult cold cranking.

    Please don't flame my noob queries I am just thinking loud and trying to learn.

    @siraj_7 please explain what is the problem and prime objective. Plugs & ignition coil has to match. The mismatch will cause either to short-out or overheat, @margallar share your recent experience of KAPUT CDI coil @SER_GTR @argtr65 @syncview

    Your first step is to get a digital multimeter. Check the coil input voltages, they are always bad even in newish suzukis.

    To increase the output voltage, you will imo need an entire kit, with a new coil and distributor, or at least ignition module.

    It won't be a good investment, msd will probably cost more than the car.

    The best you can do, check the battery voltage, it should always be atleast 14 volts. If not, you might have bad contact and grounding.

    Second, you need to check the voltage at the coil positive with ignition switch in on position. It should be equal to battery voltage, else you should install a relay.

    Next check the state of the ignition parts themselves.

    I am sure your car will need the relay

    Since amperage is a function of wattage divided by volts, its essentially works based on supply and demand. The alternator only supplies as much amperage as each component demands.
    When you install a high amperage alternator, you should consider replacing both the ground straps and the power cable that runs from the alternator to the battery with heaver gauge cable.
    Never loose hope in life,every step gives u something.

    You Don't Need A BIG AMP Alternator Until Ur Running Some Bad **** AUDIO System Which Will Undo Your Chassy Welds In Couple Of Months.....

    Your 55AMP Battery Is Enough To Power Your IGN Along With Everything If Its All Fine....If Someone Need To Do Extra ......Ground Your Engine Room In Series Along With Engine To Ensure Strong Ground So Stable Voltage Across Engine Room SHould Be Achieved....

    @capsat @margallar The carby cultus has a maximum gap setting of 0.6-0.7mm and the EFI cultus has 1.0-1.1 mainly because the ignition system in carby cultus can not make the spark jump more than 0.7mm. I want to increase this to 1.1 if possible and upgrade the ignition system to achieve this. Is it possible? How?

    EFI & CARB engine have different Ignition control system, - BTW who is your 'consultant' for such 'Tweeks'. correctly timed ignition & fine tuned carb can improve upon vehicle fuel economy. I suggest overhaul the distributor and get a tune up. @syncview @Xulfiqar

    if you use a coil that gives greater output, the bottle neck will be the ignitor/ (called cdi by desis), it is the thing that is the bottleneck, if you use such a coil, the ignitor will die. So you will need to find something that can bear that kind of voltage

    if the ignitor dies, the car won't have spark.

    @capsat @margallar @nasirjavaid

    Just for education purposes, I want to achieve a spark plug gap of 1.1 to 1.5mm

    Carby Cultus has gap of 0.6-0.7mm EFI Cultus has gap of 1.0-1.1mm

    The reason is better ignition system, better COIL/IGNITOR which can make the spark jump the extra length without misfiring

    Now the bottle neck is the igniter as @margallar is saying that if I put a bigger coil, it will kill the igniter so now my question is which igniter to swap with to achieve this?

    Please give me doable suggestion and don't suggest MSD ignition system which will cost more than the car
