any "DG Auto Electric" shop will do it.
They are good, and they will sell you a rewound H.O. alt for fairly cheap.
I got a 180 Amp alt for 200 bucks, for example.

there is one on the Queensway, just west of IKEA, across the street from where the strip club Features used to be ('casino' now )

check em out they are good and cheap

I couldnt tell you, it was in an older car of mine.

It did enough so that with headlights, heater, and a jbl 600.1 amp turned up all the way, the drain was not noticeable either visibly (no light flicker) or on a voltmeter( the shop manager hooks one up with everything turned on high to make sure ya got enough juice.)

And it worked well the entire two years the system was IN the car,
and stil works now (no system in that car now)

This place sounds very interesting, I need to get a more powerful alternator that will put out more than 180amps but i want it to do that at idle.

I would figure any halfway decent auto-electric shop will be able to help you. Just get them to hook up a voltmeter, turn on all your stuff, and start swapping alts til you get enough power, I guess


If you want, look up DG auto electric in the yellow pages, they have a few franchises.
