GM alternator upgrade. Pretty easy compared to the improvement.

The GM alt kept up until I came to a stop (idle) at more than 1/2 volume then it dropped to 12 volts and occasionally went to 11 volts on a strong bass line... Its well worth it.

XT6 Alternator works reasonably...90A max output is typical. I think I have one; if you want to try it out, it'll be available when I'm back from vacation.
