Bigger Alternator

Has anyone fitted a bigger than 95A alternator to their EB-EL 5.0?
I was thinking of an AU 130A but it doesn't fit and the bracket is $300.

The LTD isn't liking the extra electricals and I think my current alternator is dying. While I'm at it time for an upgrade... :)

anyone know if the EA pulley fits? the EF+ has a multi-v serpentine belt, hope the EA pulley will fit on the alt.
