    Question reguarding the amount of Amperes

    Ok so the stock alt on my blazer is only 90A, WTF was Chevy thinking??? Anyways I've done some research and realized that with my 2-ch Kenwood and my RE35-1D both running that they will pull in total 90 amperes from my alt!!!!!!!!! Fawk!!!!! That means there will be no juice left over for the rest of m car. So my question is, if I were to upgrade my alt somehow, what would be a good number of Amperes to have at my disposal to allow for the rest of my car to get the power it needs. I was told I should have atleast 20a left over after figuring in the power draw from my amps.

    I'd say get it rewound to at least 125....
