Default I just changed my window motor, still have problems....

I changed my window motor last night on my passenger side, went it real easy and tested the window and it went up and down fine. The problem is is that it moves at an extremely slow speed compared to the drivers side, I understand that this is due to power lost in the wiring going to the motor. Where is the write up showing how to give this window motor a more direct power source so that it will move a little faster than syrup. Thanks.

I believe the write-up is on the website for the sponsor who sells it. For the life of me I can't remember their name. trix, fix, I forgot.

The problem might still be the motor. I've installed several defective "new" units. Some were faster than others.

So the drivers side window doesnt have the same wiring issue that the passenger side does? My passenger side window goes up and down fine, doesnt seem slow, but my drivers side window motor died, about to order a new one.
