I've got to say that after opening my headlight bucket for the 1st time yesterday I was surprised how small the positive wires to the headlight were (maybe 16 ga) and was wondering about voltage loss so I may put some larger wires in myself. My question is when restrictive wiring is used (like my stock wires) is this reducing the load on the stator or is the stator working just as hard with either wire size? If the smaller wire is simply loosing some of the watts through heat I'll definatly put the larger positive wires in my '03. I'm all about being seen by others on the road. I'm just trying to protect my very hard to replace stator.
