It seems like my alternator is acting up again. The first time i had this issue about a year or so ago i was able to take it back to the dealership n got it replaced under warrenty. But i have done quite a bit of modding since then and have a feelin the dealer would end up chargin me an arm n a leg to get another week stock alternator.
So i was lookin for a replacement has anyone heard of Bosch Alternators? Would this be a suitable and more powerful replacement

or is there something another manufacter i should consider.
Thanks in advance for your help...

They don't have specs. Amperage rating would be helpful.

It might. Seems to me that the regulator would limit the output at a certian point, though. It might wear out the bearings prematurely too.

Well, I'll be running 2 JL 1000/1's, 2 JL 12W7's, a JL 300/4, at least 3 sets of components, a car-pc, and though not on at all times, 12 TV's and an incredible amount of neon lighting. I do believe that I need to do something, lol.

Perhaps a 2nd battery with an isolator...

Perhaps you just put a Generarator in the back of your car. :3_winkthu

Best option and much cheaper than getting an aftermarket. If you MUST have an aftermarket drop in there are

http://www.hoalternators.com/
http://4alterstart.com/ (ive heard you can send them a core and they will rewind to your specs)
Iraggi alternators, cant find a site, see some on ebay. some of the best.
http://www.ohiogen.com/ -ohio generators are also some of the best.

expect a 200amp alt from any of those companies to run you around $500

If you can find a shop around you to rewind your stocker, the last time i was looking around, it was $1-2/amp so a ~200amp alt would be around $2-400 depending on area.



here is a thread from a car audio site talking about a various assortment of aftermarket alternator companies and options

I think the price is outrageous.
Thats wat i was thinking also, but it doesnt seem like there r many option, i want my car correctly again but i dont want to rely on gettin another stock alternator i have no faith in any of hyundai's stock parts at this point.

Does anyone know a place from personal experience working with in the NY/NJ area that could possibly uncoil and re-wind one to get close to 200 amps for a decent price?
