I know this has been hashed over a time or two but I haven't really found the answer yet. My original alternator died last month so I swapped in a used one to get me by while I figure out a permanant deal. The problem is that with an amp that pulls 25 (and I have another to put in), lights on, EFI pump, AC fan, etc. The stock alt ain't up to the task (especially at idle where the volts dip down to batt voltage) and that is probably why my old one died. Mean Green seems like a possibility but I saw another post on here that I can't find right now that someone was unhappy with the output of it. I figure I need 60+ amps minimum at idle. A GM alt seems like it would be cost effective, however, I have not seen any info on mods needed to stuff into a 3FE and keep the smog pump (but I can lose that if I have to.) If I'm gonna lose the pump anyway, a dual alt setup might be better anyway, but do two the two systems have to be separate? Anybody figured out another way to deal with this?
