The Official 'i Just Bought...' Thread

Recommended Posts

A bunch of gifts for my RedditGifts matches.

 

I think I spent nearly $130 on my two matches.

 

Now I just gotta get them all here, package them up and ship them out.

 

:D

Eh, the laptop itself performance-wise should be around $750 (just has newer components). Laptops are still too overpriced these days. Same with an Xbox. :P

This is probably the best deal on a laptop though. :( But hey, I need one for class, so I had no choice. Personally, I don't like laptops.

I'm bringing up my dual 22". :D

 

Also, I just bought a new alternator for the Mustang. Motorcraft 130 amp, and a new serpentine belt. $270 shipped, total.

Why 130 amp? Seems like overkill on a car with no stereo. Smaller ones tend to be more efficient even at lower RPM (do you underdrive the alternator too?). I don't even know what on my car but it's TINY. :lol:

That seems about right. My dakota has a 140Amp and my WRX has a 130Amp, so a 130Amp for a mustang sound about right.

 

 

Waco isn't yours just a hamster in a wheel for the miata.

Yeah but you only need a small alt if you're not running a lot of accessories.

 

Besides...why replace what isn't broken? :lol:

I guess one question we should of asked in the first place. Onion why did you replace the alt, was it broken or did you just feel like replacing it with something bigger?
