New Alternator

I spent a couple of hours (and some $$$) today installing a new high output alternator from DC Power Engineering. It is the 270 XP model with a peak output of 270 amps and 190 amps at idle. The install is easy and I changed out the idler pulleys and serpentine belt at the same time. I ran 1/0 welding cable from the alt. through a 300 amp ANL fuse to the battery, replacing the stock fusible link wire. Prior to installing the alt. I had replaced the stock battery to a Diehard Platinum and upgraded my ground cables from the body and chassis. Once everything was hooked up I fired up the truck and checked for smoke! Since nothing was on fire I turned on my on-board air compressor that draws 90 amps and with the truck at idle I was pleased to hear it running at top speed without the need to run the RPM's up to 2000.
I turned on the headlights and the A/C and only when I ran the fan at top speed did the compressor bog down a little, but I bumped the RPM's up to 1500 and everything ran fine. Apparently no issues with the ECU/regulator either.
The alt. is slightly larger than stock, but quite a bit heavier.

It has a 2 year warranty. I ran #4 welding cable in addition to the existing ground cables. Dual batteries, but I run the compressor off the main battery. I got the Big-A** Die-Hard made by Odyssey like Ducky's Dad has.
