Re: Altinator upgrade?
Yeah, u need a high ouput alt. I've heard you can get em through Autozone, and they're only like 20-30 bucks more than stock ones (w/ core exchange). As for seperate batteries, just depends on what kinda subs/amp(s) ur plannin on runnin. Usually u don't need an extra battery unless you have some sort of show vehicle, where you'll have it sittin around, blastin w/ the engine off. Also, just to throw this our for the hell of it, my friend had an old s10 that he'd put a serious system in, and instead of buyin a high output alternator, he went to the salvage yard and got another old used one, cut off the mounting points, and welded it right below the original alt., he just used a longer sepertine belt, and had both alternators workin at once, just spliced the new b-terminal in with the old one. Course that's if you're really pressed for cash.
