He should have sent his alternator to Ken Hemmings to get it rewound to a higher output.
Ken charges more than the fleebay Chinese alternator but he puts out a far better alternator.

Prices are not that bad really.
$250 for a good, high output rebuilt alternator is not that bad of a deal IMO.
$125 for a tested/reconditioned or $150 for a complete standard rebuilt is also not a bad deal.
I have book marked that page for future use (hopefully I never need it, but nice to have just in case).

Good video. Electrics done as I would, separate from the OEM harness. Great for troubleshooting, and you don't overload the OEM wiring. Nice job!
