lol im a noob! idk it says alt turn on speed 600rpms, and if i put my car in park the idle goes up slightly you know, so my voltage therefore goes up as well once it hits that 600 mark, so im trying to bump it up just a little bit for while im on drive. and i was looking for a smaller pulley and i already have about the smallest one i can find on it.. so thats why i just wanted to get the idle bumped up a tiny bit.

Whose alt do you have? You shouldn't have to compensate for a shitty alt that doesn't do shit at your "real" idle. Get your money back and get a real high output alt. But damn that's a low idle.

the alt is probably passed its money back time anyways, so i cant just drop some more bills to get a new one. im pretty sure its the smallest pulley you can really run too.
