    Buying a new HO alt. Help deciding

    I am looking at buying a new alt for my 09 silverado 5.3. I got a great price from Tenney for a 270amp, but I am not sure I want to go that route. I can get a DC 300amp spx for my truck from them for 518 shipped. I am willing to spend almost double what the Tenney would cost me if I know it is that much better. I know Tenney is new and doesn't have many reviews out there. I know the DC is built from the ground up but don't know if the Tenney is.. Any guidance is appreciated

    Shity. Thanks for the advice.


    Now that I know the Tenney is also built from the ground up I think I am going to go that Direction. Just not sure to get the 270 or the 300
