    Thanks guys, I'm going to look into a few companies and get some quotes. I just hope I don't pay a ton for a Alt and require more power down the road. I doubt I'll need anything greater than 250 amps ever.

    The reason i say go with Tenney is its a lifetime warranty man. Ohio only does a 1 or 2 yeear. Mechman does like 2 or 3 year warranty. Dopnt know about EA or Iraggi. Tenney caught my eye and i went that route
    Yeah I'm thinking I might get this 180 amp alt for $22 from powermax USA. Should fit my needs well.

    DBelectrical is garbage. I ordered two of their "220" amp ones and it was worse than my stock 135amp. They had some stupid excuse when I called them, so I just returned it.

    Well your only option then really would be dual alts + hella batteries if one HO alt isnt enough

    Re: How far can you go on stock alt?

    Well I'm going to see how my funds go, but I need to get my electrical setup right before I go adding more stuff to my car and dropping voltage like crazy. Amp for my mids/run 1/0 get a rear bat then HO alt, I'm guessing I'll either get one of these Powermax alts or singer/mechman/EA etc.. Then will come the new substage and what not. Get's expensive quick haha!

    Re: How far can you go on stock alt?

    Do not get some ebay alt if you want it to last. They are cheap for a reason. Also, I'd avoid Iraggi like the plague, awful history for a lot of people there. And Mechman alts seem to work good when they work, but he has some iffy business past that I wouldn't want to deal with.
    Tenney (totally forgot about them earlier)and Singer would be my two first picks. EA and Ohio are both great options as well. DC Power is decent, they just take FOREVER to build, but they are local to me, so that's kind of convenient.

    You got that right.

    At least EVERYTHING but the alternator you can always bring with you if you switch cars.

    even the 1/0..

    Well you can always swap the old alt back in and sell the HO one for a chunk of change.
