    Ok i guess no one is running one.

    Anyone running any type of upgraded alternator then?

    And how do you like it?

    I'm running a CS130 alternator, got it off eBay for like $70 shipped. I think it only has an output of 110A. Works great for me! With electric fans on high speed, amp turned all the way up and headlights on, there's no dimming or anything. If you need more amperage, then a CS140 would be better.
    I should also add that i got the adapter plug on ebay as well!

    I have a cs130 from a 91 454ss pickup. I got it from from rockauto and got the cs130 plug from amazon. I love it. No more dimming lights.

    I also went with the CS130 @105 amps. It's a vast improvement over my old 10 and 12si units. I bought mine thru these people. https://alternatorparts.com/alternator-parts.html
    and bought the AC-Delco adapter plug from Amazon.
    No more screeching to try and keep up...

    I bought a couple of these years ago but never went to the CS Style.

    For some crazy reason I just can't accept that all that's needed is the little harness to make it work reliably.

    John,
    If you decide to go with a CS unit, use the proper adapter. One has the resistor, if you have no charging light, and one without, if you do have it. It also couldn't hurt to have the right lower bracket where the large bolt goes thru.

    Does your car have a charge light? If not, then you'll need the adapter with the resistor to excite the alternator.
    The one you're showing may have the resistor. Peel back the covering on the wires...if it has the resistor, you'll see it soldered inline with one of the wires.

    I'll see if I can find the part # for the one I used.
