What is this called and what does it do? I'm replacing the engine cover with a Woodcraft one. Have no idea what this thing inside does.

The non moving copper coils in the cover are the stator, the rotation of the flywheel inside them creates electricity. It is actually an alternator, similar to a generator but producing AC instead of DC.

A new one costs close to 3 hundred bills bro (from RonAyers.com), make sure you install it back onto the cover correctly. I had to replace mine because of a wreck, but I bought it from this Canadian place called RMStator (awesome peeps) -- only 150 bucks.

Looks like a murder scene...

That thing with all the coils, its just extra weight, you can toss it and get ride of the stock muffler bearing, and the muzzy clutch while your at it. You'll save like 30 pounds and that translates into more horsepower!

That, sir, is the infamous Flux Capacitor. It is critical for any and all time travel. If you remove this, you will experience time travel in a much slower manner. Namely, "real time".

Ug... too.... ear..ly!
