I have 2 monor problems I would like to fix.

the first is my new alternator. Bran new bosh alternator, new pulley ect. When I start the car, I ned to reve to at least 2.5K and then my lights and gauges "brighten" and my alternator works. If I never reach 2.5K, my alternator will not turn on. (found this out by letting my car idle to warm up with the defrost and heater on.. car died of a dead battery)

second is my hard start problem.. if the car has been sitting for a while, it will start right away, run really rough and die. it will do this twice and then run rough. when warm, runs A1.

Maybe unrelated, but when I stall the car because off pour shifting. (my bad) the car takes 30 seconds of cranking to start. when turned off and turned back on, starts normally.

I have had an injector flush (not just a can of cleaner) , new fuel filter, new wires and bosh platinum pluggs.

Any ideas?
