mrcooley.......something you might want to look into as far as keeping alternators in good health with a system, is not,
the highly regarded CAPS, but an extra battery. The alternator won't even know there is a system in the car. My alternator, when
I first bought the car, a little over a year ago, was displaying the red electrical warning at around 5500 rpms, even before I installed
my system. Reason I ask about rebuilding them, is now it is displaying the warning at 3500ish rpms, and I have heard from numerous
sources that it is better to rebuild the alternators, rather than replace them and possibly face the same situation. Anyone else have
thoughts on this issue? To be quiet honest, I'm not looking forward to replacing it PERIOD, much less if I run into the same problem later.
