Sounds good. But I would ditch the cap(s) idea and simply put the money saved into upgrading the wiring under your hood and all around in your setup...along with thinking about replacing your battery with an XS Power, Kinetik, Stinger, BatCap, Northstar, or other reputable battery make. And if you still have bad voltage-drop after the wiring upgrades and the battery upgrade, you'll need to look into a high-output alternator to combat it as well (if that is your case...contact Mechman alternators...they will have an option for you pretty much no matter what you drive...they have great output at idle and they give you a birth sheet with an output-curve chart from dyno testing that they do before they ship it to you...fantastic company and fantastic alternators)

But I seriously think just beefing up your your wiring and upgrading your battery to a more high-perofrmance one will be enough since it is that much power really. Good luck though

there's a lot of mixed reviews about using a capacitor on this forum...some swear by them while others say that they don't work for crap.  After reading on numerous posts, I would say it's advisable to put that money towards a 2nd battery like the ones pioneer saturn suggested.
