Most of your cheap alternators will be about the same ... Honestly I just bought a mechman 240a for my 92 civic and its sexy .. I don't regret buyin it at all ... 140a at idle full 240 by 1800 rpm ... I thought about gettin a cheaper one off ebay or something but just the fact that mechman has a warranty and is so highly regarded I decided to spend a little more and while I have yet to install it their staff was very helpful and once I got the unit in my hands it really is a nice quality product ... What else is involved in your electrical ? Depending on what car you have the money might be better spent elsewhere

It will be going on my cb7 but im also bagging it and i have 5 optima batteries but ive been considering going with kinetik or shuriken batteries, i also want to know if they make alternators for an h22 or do i have to wait and get it custom made, im not really wanting to hit big numbers on the meter, hell i'll be happy with 147db but it has to be on music i never liked hitting numbers with test tunes

Deff get rid of the optimas , I like my xs power battery personally ... Also I'm sure f/h alternators are the same so is imagine they sell one for a accord or prelude one , and if your bagging your Deff gonna need some juice , you may want to delete your power steering and fab up a bracket to run a high output gm one wire alternator there with an external voltage regulator ... And as many big batterys as you can fit and of course lots of heavy gauge quality power wire ... Just remember the electrical will make or break your stereo and your already going to be taxing it with the bag setup.. wish I could be of more help buddy but that's all I really have on your delima lol

I wouldn't use rockford ... Look into knuconcepts ... I have their kolossus flecks stuff and its my personal fave wire I've ever used and its decently priced aswell ( 50 foot of 1/0 was like 180$ ) ... Rockford is good but it isn't as flexible or as cheap as knuconcepts ... I just replaced my rockford 4ga with knuconcepts 1/0 and the 1/0 was more flexible than my 4ga :/
