Was wondering how powerful the stock alternator is in regards to amperage?? What would be a suitable alternator replacement? I have looked on the Jc Whitney homepage and they have 60-80-100 amp alternators there which I have shown interest in ... In regards to the stock alternator, which would be the best alternator for my 6 running a serious sound system in the car... 80 or 100 amp ? ?would they fit ??

Sorry I can't answer your question, but your sig says GT non turbo. As far as I know there is no such thing, all GT's are turbo and LX's and DX's are not. Just curious...

Well believe it or not, It is not a turbo. This is the european version 2.0l non turbo running at 147hp. Would be nice to have a turbo though.

Aaah the FE3 motor. If I'm not mistaken, you should have 170hp. Anyway, as far as alternators are concerned, I would get a cap (or 2) and try not to rely on alternator power for subwoofers.
