I'm interested, what kits are you talking about?

What kinda power do the pumps draw? I've wondered if the factory alternator will handle the extra current draw.

Is there a kit for this? I have heard of guys adapting the one off the Toyota MR2/MRS, but only for racing.

Electric power steering pump and electric water pump would have to free up a few usable kws, wouldn't it? And wouldn't slow down the alternator and air con like an underdrive pulley.

The guy with the el on boosted falcon wants to possibly use a bmw one, and peiple seem to think all the accesories like alternator,waterpump etc are over driven anyway so underdrive pulley kits dont matter
