Sooo... I bought an A/C system...Cause it's hot! That being said, this car has had 3 alternators: the 1G with regulator, did not charge well...; GM 10si, stock and modded AND overdriven, did not charge well, especially at idle; Come the 2G with my 5.0 install, my problems are solved!!-NOT. Didn't charge for crap at idle (11.6v with lights on...BLAH!).
Recently there was a large thread posted by a well meaning VMFr that stressed adding a fuse link on a specific aftermarket 3G alternator. It snowballed into a very informational article.
Further research on this lead me to several Fox forums showing mods for 3G installs, but what caught my eye was one guy did a 6G and it was tight and nice. And installing A/C and probably another fan with a less than adequate charging is uh DUMB. So I bit the bullet...
It's just a little rust...
