it regulates the amount of power needed to send to the system based on the factors I mentioned earlier. Without it, it might be over powered or underpowered.

so I tried it out....kinda...

I went over all the wires, good voltage and runs good up on jack stands and put it in gear and no issues....

I need to man up and put it on the ground and see what she does...I'll report back when I test it out...
