Cassie, to add another dimension, why don't you add the LED replacements to your report aswell? That maybe of interest to some too.
That is a good idea. The problem is the difference in the price and the budget for the test :blackeye:

Found this spec sheet from Bosch Starters.JPG To calculate the current from kW, use the formula P = VI (P - Watts V - Voltage I - Current) So for a 3.0l Diesel you would need a 2.2kW (2200W) starter. Using the formula: 2200W = 12v x I I= 2200 / 12 I = 183A As Andy stated, it also depends on the batt...

A starter motor from a normal 2 Liter petrol engine draws between 60 and 200 Amps when turning over the engine when the oil is warm and thin. Under winter conditions, this current can easily double when the oil is thick. Diesel engines have a very high compression ratio e.g. 22:1 and require more po...
