A couple things to keep in mind about these caps.

  • The voltage rating of the cap is only really important if you try to use a cap that is rated below your system. So do not attempt to use anything with a voltage rating below 15v for its normal rating. Most caps have a dual rating, but to use the higher voltage rating other aspects must be met or taken into consideration. It's not worth messing with.

  • The capacitance, expressed here in microfarads (uF) was speced at 22uF. I do not know how or where this value was determined, I'm just trying to provide owners out there some options. All parts listed here are 22uF. Usually it does not harm anything to have a greater value, but since this cap is to be used to clean up the electrical signal to the ECU, I would not try another value. Especially since this value has been proven to work well.

  • Tolerance. This value could be important. It basically gives you an idea of how accurate, or true, the part is. Caps are not exact creatures and have sway in there values. They are all rated as +/- X%. So obviously a cap with a smaller tolerance will give you better results.

  • Body style. Axial has leads coming out each end of the part. Kind of like a car axle. Radial has both leads coming out the same side of the part. Like legs. While neither style will offer a performance advantage, I would think the radial leaded parts will physically fit in the location better.

All of the above items can be purchased from a number of vendors. Most wholesalers of electronic parts do not like to sell small quantities of parts. But the following online vendors will sell to you. They may however impose a small minimum purchase amount. Probably your best bet is to use Digi-Key ( www.digikey.com ) or Newark ( www.newark.com ). You may also have good luck with Allied Electronics ( www.alliedelec.com ), Mouser Electronics ( www.mouser.com ) and of course Radio Shack ( www.radioshack.com ). Radio Shack however is not going to use the manufacturer's part numbers in this list. You will have to search through their stuff for the values you want.
