Take my word for it, this really works!!

When I first saw the RAIZIN voltage stabilizer I thought that it was another one of those "Tornado intake" krap. At that time it was a little expensive and translating some of the Japanese RAV4 web sites, its reviews in Japan were, as I could understand, were good. So I risk, at that time, $179.00.

When I installed it with the Pivot Ground kit, I was surprise at the performance of this little box. Now I see it at this price. It will pay for itself in less then a year. BTW, its Die Hard, and last a long time. So, if you are looking for an inexpensive electrical upgrade, power, and some torque. Check this little instrument out. Also, install the Pivot ground kit. Then call me in the morning. You'll be glad you did.

That's a cool product. Have you calculated the mileage gains? BTW what points on your vehicle have you grounded, do you have pics of your install?

This is one of the coolest mods you can do and its relatively cheap. It was done by one of the earliest legends of this forum, Derek. A great guy from Hawaii. When this forum was in its infancy Derek, Corrupt Files, Gunny, Checho, DJ Sueno, and I and a bunch of RAV.1 members were knocking our heads together on how to do this and many more mods so we can extract the maximum power from a weak 3SFE engine. At that time their NO performance parts for the RAV4 since it was a relatively new vehicle on the market. Derek, the neatest, organized and creative man I've ever met came through with this installation. You will be surprised on how good it works and helps the electrical system. BTW, if you get the Razini Voltage stabilizer you'll see a great increase in torque.

Did you do the RAIZIN voltage stabilizer and extra grounds at the same time?
If not which made the biggest difference?
I got good improvement from running extra grounds to motor and firewall.

As a matter of fact I did the extra ground wires. I was looking at Pivot extra wires that went from the negative battery terminal directly to the engine block. (here) Its called Pivot Ignition Ground. But I used an ordinary thick Negative Battery wire. Man, it starts at a dime.

I always tell people to go to the firewall also.
My question was did you do them at the same time?
You may have seen this before but it is interesting.
Bad ground wearing out axles.

No, if I remember correctly, I first installed the ground kit. I saw my brothers Honda with it and he recomended it to me. It was a kit that I bought on EBay with red wires. Then I bought the Razini in 2005, see below.
RAIZIN to be installed on...DONE...Updated with photos
Then I installed the Blue wire from Pivot that I bought from Amazon. It still is working great. My electrical system, which included a MSD 6A, hasn't given me any problems at all.

Hi I ordered the product and received it.
I was wondering where did you put the voltage stabilizer box. I cant find a decent place and it says in the instructions that the wires exiting the box cannot be upward.
If you could post a picture that would be great, thanks.

Just place it on your Battery. If you look carefully, you can see it on the battery and the terminals are in a perfect position. I imagine you also did the ground kit. If you did. Once installed, drop me a PM

Are you guys serious?? Bwahahaha...

Anywayz.. just read the FAQ on this product and had a good laugh. My favourite was why vehicle manufacturers don't install it at the factory. It's too expensive.. lol.

These things do bugger all. 7% hp increase my ass. What a waste of money.

Someone get their car on a dyno and do a before and after power run and then I might believe it.
