Thinking about upgrading my starter to a shiny new Terry. Been highly recommended by a couple of my friends. But which one is right for me? They come in 1.2, 1.4 and 2.0kW versions. The 1.2 kw is supposed to be a stock replacement, but why wouldn't i go with the 1.4kW since it's the same price? Is there a disadvantage? More strain on the battery? Harder on the motor?
Your advice is appreciated. Anyone had experience with these starters? Thanks, everyone.
Curious if the old starter was bad or are you just swapping to be swapping?
I'd think the higher rated starters are for needed torque in modified engines.

The 1.4 kw starter will have a bit more torque than the 1.2 kw.
This will spin the engine over easier, not faster.
The 2 kw has more torque for hi comp engines, you would only require this starter if you had done a lot of work on the engine[UP TO STAGE 3]
The 1.4 kw would not load the cables or the battery any more than the 1.2 kw would.

A low power and a high power
If we fit a low power it lasts no more that 6 months,
the high power one lasts at least 12 months?
But we fit what ever the customer wants?
