    Re: Alternator questions

    U shouldnt need a ho alt for that setup at all ..and id rather have stock alt than those 2 companies...u might wana upgrade later dowb the road so a good alt will help...jus make sure u run all 1/0 wire do the big 3.get a good agm batt under the hood and maybe another bat for the trunk .and a voltage meter to monitor voltage drop
