Is my Voltage Regulator broke?

I suspect my VR is bad. And if it is, how much longer until the alternator goes out? Will a bad VR jepordise my battery?

I got one at Pull A Part for $8.50, works beautifully.
On a side note, it's kind of a testament to how solid a Subaru really is. My VR went bad and I still drove it to work and home. a 50 minute commute, both ways, with the needle pegged at 18 volts. When I slapped the new alt. in, there was no lasting damage.

As for overvoltage, it can boil your battery, and that is a really bad thing for the bat. Should be fixed asap.

Ive parked the car, and will replace the alt and some wiring later in the week. I am going to wire a new stereo and CB. Anyone have any wiring tips to help protect my car from exploding
I also have two 150watt off-road lights i need to wire too.
