I'm in the market for big HO alt. Looking for 220+amps at idle if possible.
Right now I have a DC 240a model which I have not yet clamped but am told it's around 165a at idle. I have a dc amp clamp on the way to check it.
So far I have looked into DC power 270xp being the biggest I can get, and Mechman has a 340a model that is supposed to do 240a at idle.
I have seen some good reviews on EA alts here and there, but nothing on his big alts. I read he is cheaper, and can now build a 350a alt so I was hoping someone could give me feedback on idle current, customer service and reliability.
I have a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer with a 4.6 v8, uses a 4g alt but I modified the top bracket to accept a 6g.
I am going to be running 5 XS d3100 batts with the alt to provide power for an AB 1100.1, sax-200.4, and sax 125.2.
Thanks in advance.
