96 Alternator on an 01 PnP Pro
I'm starting to plan the wiring for my prepared autocross only car, so here's my first noob question. I want to get the starting, charging, and power distribution sorted out first. I've read all the VVT swap info and the question isn't really addressed for my situation..
01 VVT Engine & 01 factory engine harness
ECU will be MS PNP Pro MM0105 (2001-2005)
I have both the 01 and 96 alternators. I'd like to run the 96 alternator to keep the chassis wiring changes to a minimum. This choice will of course leave the alternator control connections on the MS at T4 & 3M unused and open.
Will leaving alternator control at the ECU disconnected cause any issues?
If not, is there any advantage to making the necessary changes and running the 01 alternator?
