I recently purchased a PWR barrel type AWIC and am in the market for a pump to use with it. I found the following on ebay and hoping some one with experience can tell me if this is a good pick or not. It says to use this with a 10amp fuse, which seems excessive for an automotive application, do you think the stock alternator can hold up? Here is a link to the one I am talking about:

Thanks.

So stock alternator should be fine driving this thing? 10amps seems excessive, but im guessing it doesnt draw that much it just needs to be fused that high.

Re: (vwtuning)

I run a gm 1 wire alt and run the pump off a switched 30amp relay, realistcally you only need the IC under boost, not all the time so maybe a microswitch that comes on when it see's boost?
