And, that area is not cool. Here is a pic of a multimeter that I had been carrying in the bottom of the tool bin.

The OEM Voltage Regulator/Shunt type gets to about 200-350 degrees F (from what I've read). Will burn you if you touch it.

Whereas my Mosfet Shindengen VR is just Warm (Appx 100 Degrees F) to the touch but does not get HOT.

It stays that cool? I'm all over it. Good write up. My stocker runs 165 located here. The other day it went to 17 volts for a minute.

Yep, it is that much of a difference
...and remember your past post about your OEM VR reaching the 245 degree level range.

Nice work.. will definitely be looking at doing this in the future.
Yes and no. It doesn't permanently look like that but, I do have it routed to just above my chain with a K&N Breather Element attached to it after the one-way valve.
