If you are using good wires then there should be no whine but if it is still there try re-routing the wires again. And try changing the ground point of HU and AMPS or anything else if they are there.

He doesn't mean alternator whine induced into the sound system. He means the fuel pump noise.

The whine is from the fuel pump itself, not an interference pal. Of course, Zuhemi (and Zak) know better than that to deal with interference issues by now.

This whine is a typical characteristic of most high-performance fuel pumps. More pronounced inside the cabin because it's directly underneath the rear seats. There are some options to reduce this whine, like upgrading the wiring to the pump and using relays to provide the pump with more power than a stock lancer.

Of course, you can also go a bit farther and use some active noise cancellation techniques

Zak, are you listening pal?

Folks, the install is in progress. Z is doing a pretty meticulous install and is paying a lot more attention to detail than he normally does (*I'm jealous*). He's not taking this as just an ordinary install and is putting in quite a bit extra into it, just as the car and the owner deserves. He wants this install to look as great as it is going to sound.

We Kochi folks have not been able to click many pics. Zak is stuck in Bangalore with work, so he's not been able to click any pics or post details either. He must be tearing out his hair in anticipation and the frustration of not being able to see the car. Let's go easy on him and not make him lose all his hair

I think the install should be complete before the next weekend. And then, we'll wallpaper this thread with totally bling pics. Somebody please bring a good camera when the car is done. Or, I'll have to torture you folks with crappy mobile-phone pics.

I dun know what has happened, but there has to be something serious at his side so as to not post any updates for this long.
Hydra, any particular reason for this long abscence of zak??

Zak seems to be more interested in updating his FB status multiple times in a day. Why kill all with the mystery Zak, please update this thread too...
