    Cheaper HO ALT, alternative?

    Im sure this has been asked but I cant seem to find the right combination of words apparently for the search feature to give me what I want..

    What are the circumstances that must be present in order to carry my OEM alt to a "Starter, alternator rebuild shop" and have them turn it into a HO alt? Is this even feasible. Plan to call them on monday to see if it is doable but dont want to sound like a complete ******* lol.

    Most rebuild shops will most likely charge you an arm and a leg and they just dont end up doing rated amps as quoted. You are better off buying a real HO alty and selling your factory to compensate the cost. Even the powewrmax alternators found on ebay are not that bad and are very cheap. I have used several of them along with other local people that I sold them too and we have all been very pleased with their output considering the price. Tenney would be your best option looking around. 250.00 and 350.00 depending on size.
