    Not really, becuase if your alternator can't keep up already, adding another thing to charge won't help any.

    Re: Noob questions about battery isolators

    how reasonable is it to have a dual altanator system? like extending the belt for the extra pulley?

    Very reasonable. Look up the xxx^6 truck and you'll see his dual alternators. Very feasible if you have the room under the hood I would suppose.
