Talk to Eric. He might be able to do something for you. You don't need anything fancy. Just a nice low drag, reliable, and properly fitting alternator.

Lemme send you my map. It took me 15 minutes to do the fuel but i know there are lots of issues like rescaling. Tuning opensource is actually WAY harder than hydra or any standalone. Very obtuse.
made a crapton of changes to it.
LMK how you like it.

I think that purple is a bit different tint than your purple, i say you send it back and ask for a lighter one.
