I know...but why dick around with crappy over priced, import alts ??? After you make the simple bracket, you can put any GM unit you want..
I choose the 21SI Series Alternator which is 160a and go up to 250a depending on the unit...These are the units that Ready Power Systems uses in the portable welder applications that all the Jeep guys have...
This unit is mainly used in the big boys like Bluebird Bus, Freightliner, Gillig Equipment, HME Equipment, Kenworth Truck, Mack, Peterbilt, Volvo White-GMC...
Anywho, you can pick these units up for around $100 from http://www.motorcityreman.com/..
Here's my original post.. http://www.4x4wire.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=69;t=008999
Here's some quick pics...(these were a pain in the arse to get !!)
Top view of the alt, you can see my bracket which is made of aircraft grade 2024/6061 aluminum (it was leftover stock from my dad's new plane <img border="0" title="" alt="[Embarrassed]" src="images/icons/blush.gif" /> )...Simple design...pretty easy to do...there's no modification to the top compressor bracket or adjustment unit..

Ass-view from the back, notice the big 4gauge wire that goes to the bat <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" />
