Honolulu, hi
Hey guys need help picking out a HO ALT since I really don’t know too much about them so here it is

Singer Alt gave me price of $499 specs:

MDL(240A peak) IDLE-160A (260A)

US Alternator $699 specs:

285A Peak 250A(hot)

 that’s the info they gave to me about the Alts... 

it be helpful if someone could explain what would be better choice thanks!

Can't go wrong with either (currently running Singer 275A alt for 3 years with no issues). US alternators is like Singer in the sense that it's a one man operation. US alternator hasn't been around long so there's not tons of reviews but the reviews/benchmarks so far have been great
