High output alternator for 2000 Legacy Outback Wagon
Posted 18 May 2004 - 09:44 PM
I've been searching around (with no luck) for a source for a high output alternator for my 2000 legacy outback wagon. I have a need to charge 2 deep cycle batteries that will be used for some portable equipment. I'm guessing that I'll need something in the 100-150amp range. I've looked around online but have yet to come up with a source for one. Does anyone know of a peddler of such wares?
Also, I'd love to figure out what the stock alternator for that model is rated for. Any clues?

I think I paid $300 something for the alternator.
Here's some pics
Here's the alternator birth sheet
I had to do some extending of the main feed wires for my car, but for the newer cars, all you should have to do is re-wire the plug, which shouldn't be a big deal.

If it's not very often, the stock system should be fine to charge it back up.

As for the other comment, I'll be drawing about 30 amps on and off for a period of up to a couple hours at a time. It's portable radio transmitters, so I'm guessing that I'd be putting them into a fairly deep cycle.

I'd try and talk to someone who knows more about this type of electrical setup and see if they think you really need an upgraded alternator.
