Nice. I was going to suggest the common GM small case alternator. $100 at Lordco buys you 110amps of jam.

Ya but those altinators require more horse power to turn them properly and mine is much less (poor little 4 banger)
he upgraded mine from 45 to 80 ... can't squeeze any more into it.
By the way I found out that I am running stable at 1ohm WHOOOO HOOOOO
