    Well if you can handle ASE certification, I can help you with this dilemna.

    Rewinding your existing alternator up to 130 amps for $80.00 would be a smart move. The reason you are not seeing any results with your caps is because they are dependant upon the alternator for power. The alternator can not keep up with your power demands as well as the cars. A cap is meant to only provide a brief burst of power- not to maintain the systems power integrity.

    Also true, is that there are not a lot of aftermarket parts available for your particular car. I browsed through the basic resources, Summit, JC Whitney, PAW, Jegs, Nopi, etc- Short of an exahst, ignition, and intake- there was little else.

    You may want to give a try, as they custom build alternators. However, right now your best option is to rewind your current alt to 130 amps. This should resolve your charging problems. And at $80, this is a fair price considering the case size of your alt.

    take it easy,
