I need a bigger one specifically. 61A just doesn't cut it.


So, is there a swap that doesn't suck? I mean, there's using another stocker, which could possibly get me 100A if I could figure out how to identify a junkyard 100A alternator...


Ideas?

91+ are HO 4.0s, and the alternator is regulated by the PCM.


So, no, it won't work.



But ya tried!

You can use the , just wire in an old chrysler external voltage regulator.

What would be a good donor for that? Or where could I get one?

Any pre computer dodge will have an external regulator. Its a two wire, and controls the ground side of the feild for the alt.
