    Be very careful running two converters. Test it out on a fairly deserted road before taking it into traffic. There are times with a Gen II Prius where you will put too much current into the Prius and the car will shut down. You will not be able to accelerate and will need to immediately pull over, stop the car, and turn it off and on again before it will work properly. I am speaking from experience. You do not want this to happen to you at freeway speed in traffic! It is dangerous to you and everyone around you.

    I have a Gen3 (2010 model year) Prius purchase in 2009. Is the two converters going into a Gen3 or Gen2 prius??? Make sure to have the voltages in both converters set to the proper voltages for your prius else you can easily over charge the battery stopped at a long red light.

    You should be asking ericbecky that question since he is a installer of these systems with vast knowledge and experience.

    Do they have an specialized part number for this type of Prius rear springs? Is it a custom made part or an adapted generic one?
