    Re: Looking for an alternator

    I dont trust these cheap alts. I paid $608 for my DC 270. But it also has a custom billet aluminum large case and from what they say the best internal parts. I don't know any other alt company that makes custom cases.

    Re: Looking for an alternator

    The reviews speak for themselves. Do your research and you should be fine. CES and stinger are my current two choices to pick from I've decided on. Haven't decided yet
    DC and others alike charge way to much for hardly any reason. Mechman doesn't make one for mine. Same for others. I'll probably go with CES based on the fact I want have to send in an alt. Which would just be irritating. Having to find and buy an alt to be sent in to be rebuilt. Would just be as$anying

    Re: Looking for an alternator

    I don't know how but I missed a ton of messages on page 3. What would be a good four door and tweet setup. Is there a kit option from like Crescendo or skar or others. Mine has factory tweet pods and I could attach some other to the back pillars, just on there lol

    Mechman does custom billet alts.

    There really isnt "better" in alts.

    Depends on regulator brand, hand wound or machine wound, stator quality.

    If you buy a pre machine wound wire you could build your own alt.

    Thats right. I stand corrected.

    So your saying a DC 270 and a mechman 270 internally have the same parts?

    Depends vehicle type as not all vehicles take same type voltage/rail components for the alts.

    Most of those guys use the same parts, that CES guy patrick, he proved his parts quality with that facebook post when dominic from iraggi tried to talk down on him.. Lol i forget if it was iraggi or the other one i can ever remember lol

    Re: Looking for an alternator

    Just discovered what skar zvx v2 18s can do. And for that price. Wow. Could almost do 4 18s for the price of 2 psi 15s. Nuts. Of course I'll need a bigger amp. Taramps 10k probably. But reviews are a bag of trailmix. Opinions?

    Re: Looking for an alternator

    Problem is this will throw my budget out the window and I'll probably need a 320 amp or more instead of the 240
