Default Trans Am DD build

Alright, so I'm starting this build log a little in advance as I have nearly everything I need, but the car isn't currently running . So no instal pics for a bit, but I will update with pics of the equipment and car as soon as tomorrow. Breakdown of the equipment as follows:

1995 Pontiac Trans Am, 5.7L LT1 6-speed, some performance pieces
Headunit: Alpine W205
Alt: PowerBastards 240A+
Batts: Optima Yellow Top (front) Sprinter S12V285F (rear)
Wire: Stinger Xprt Uber Flex 1/0, American Bass 1/0, Audiopipe 0, KNU Fleks 1/0, + other miscellaneous varieties of 4 and 8 gauge lol
Highs: Eclipse (Rear) and CDT (Front) silk dome tweeters
Mids: CDT ES-03 (Front) and Beyma SD-35 (Rear)

Before anyone says it...I know, thread fails without pics lol. But I promise, they are coming

Title is a little mis-leading I guess, DD as in Daily Driver

I was talking more power drain as in heavier and lack of get up and go with the weight over the rear axle (to the point you made), but yea voltage drop was an issue until I got the new alt. After that, I didn't have any issues...until the car died lol.
