    Re: HO alt HELP

    My 160 amp just came in today from motorcityreman on eBay.
    I paid $110 including shipping.
    I've not installed it yet. I've heard good and bad about them but they offer a 2 year warranty so I figured I'd give it a shot.
    It says you have to put a bigger + wire from the alternator to the battery plus a fuse.
    I'll post back when I get it installed later tonight or tomorrow.

    i was looking to stay around $200 but thats quite a jump 70 to 200, do you notice signifcant difference in driving as far as power? Has idling got rough?

    motorcityreman, idk i've read too much negative to feel comfortable with them but i'll give them a look.

    im doing the Big 3 when i install it but just to confirm, i shouldnt need any additional electrical components like a new rectifier or voltage reg?

    With a direct bolt on you shouldnt need anything other then the alt and the wire upgrade.
