stancor gpr

Does anyone else think it is overkill and harder on the truck for cold start up? Ive been thinking about it being too much. Any thoughts as opposed to a stock gpr? Mine has been installed for quite a bit now.

Some say not needed, I was going to put one in my 97, but sold the truck before I did. I feel any extra "oomph" to get the truck started is worth it to me.

Why do you doubt the one you have installed? I think it rules, personally. I was at a horse farm the other day and I saw they had their truck plugged in and I said to my wife... "man if they only knew about the stancor relay!" No joke.
I didn't see the owners or I would have surely suggested it. It was cheaper than OEM and has a higher capacity, should last longer. I would love to hear any negatives about it, I would never think of plugging my truck in, it does so well with a working relay and good glow plugs.

Enjoy!

I think it's not really worth it of the stock one is still working

I just put mine in because AA wanted $73 and Napa wanted $64. Online it was 52. Since my truck wasn't running to get to the store I resorted to the horrific online purchasing.

I wouldn't just replace it as a "mod" but if your OEM gpr is already bad.. Do what you think is right.

Although I must say, I was a little aggravated when I got it and read MADE IN CHINA. Where are the days where we made our own shlt?

- I don't really think it makes it start better, just that it will last longer and has a more robust contact surface. I bought my truck with a bad OEM one so the first 40 degree day I was really, REALLY surprised by my nice 'new to me' truck that would not start right up!

Just curious. I find that it still struggles a bit in the morning. Good batteries, good plugs, good starter,brand new positive cable, brand new starter solenoid. Any other place to look?
