While trying to assist in the recent power window wiring thread, I started thinking about how to add relays to the power window system to speed up the motors. So I modified the CSM wiring diagram to include relays.

All you electricians out there, see if it makes sense. I did a quick rendition with MS Paint. Pretty sure this will work, but I ain't no 'lectrician.

I plan to watch for answers to this question. I have purchased a PW conversion kit for my car. I am waiting for all of the other door parts that I am ordering to arrive before I start because I don't want to remove the door panels more than once. In fact, new panels will be part of the project.

Yup, just did mine with the LMC kit and this is exactly how it’s wired up. Works flawlessly. Thanks for setting this up!

it cost me under $10 fo0r the relays. Plus the window turbo would not work with my set up with the windows closing with the remote locking and setting the alarm.

I would like to see a video comparison between this and the Window Turbo.

Yeah, I have heard of the window racer plug and play setup. I might do that after I do my conversion. If you are electronically proficient, get hold of a CarTech series book called "Automotive Wiring And Electrical Systems " by Tony Candela. It is one of the workbench how-to's by SA Design # SA160. I was already half decent at electrical, but I learned a whole lot more from his book. You can probably find it easy enough at Eckler's, Dixie, Summit, or Jegs.

there will not be any difference since the source is the same and neither add any power.
I would still like to see it in a video and compare the speed to mine
