    if u insist on doing any of those do them in the following order

    1. alt upgrade
    2. cap(useless if u have a good charging system)
    3. 2nd batt (again not really needed...will only supply xtra power when car is off)


    i'd suggest u upgrade your alt instead of the other options.....

    Do your lights dim? If they do, look into a higher output alternator than your current one.

    I would start with nothing. Just hook it up and see how it performs. There's a pretty good chance things will be fine. If there are problems you can go from there.
