    Need Name of REPUTABLE high amp alternator company

    Just as the title says. I want a high amp alt that's at least 220, and will be at at least 150 amps at 2500 rpms.

    Car is an 02 Honda Civic, and will go 3-500 bucks. Maybe don't need 150 at idle, but need 150 around 2500 rpms. Needs to power 3 jl hd amps. Have an optima already

    Check out DC Power or Mechman their build quality is top notch and give out great output at idle

    Re: Need Name of REPUTABLE high amp alternator company

    I agree with my lows get rid of the optima. I have had 2 yellow tops leak from the positive terminals. Installed an XS Power battery and it was night and day. It also seems that I gained cranking power to the engine.

    All I know is it wont supply 3 amps continuous. It will if I keep volume moderate, but when I lean on volume hard, I need the rpms high, or amp, or 2 will cut out

    Also, once I get the alt straight, then I can worry about the second, or different battery
