Unhappy Does this seem right???

I just installed a high output 220 amp alt from DB Electric Yesterday and still have the stock battery. When I have the car running my multimeter says It's 16.3v - 16.4v and when I have it off It's at 14v.... I was wondering if this is harming the electrical in my car other than the system.

Also showing My first alternator swap and big 3 ( big 4 In my case)

if you have a new battery handy for your DMM try replacing it and see it if changes otherwise you can take your DMM apart and calibrate it sometimes (done that before)

I read that on these cars most ppl do it and have seen a couple of other pics with it done like that.... also that's where the stock wiring goes so I was just replacing it which is. Better for the electrical
