    The NEW! Quick Start™
    EXTREME DUTY DUAL RECTIFIER™ CS-144 alternator for GM Vehicles and other adapted applications is the only choice for super heavy duty operation. The rectifier is the most common cause of alternator failure. If you are using your alternator to it's extreme,
    YOU MUST HAVE THIS ALTERNATOR!

    It is offered in 140, 170, 200 and now!, 250 amp versions with many different front housing mounting configurations for a direct fit in your GM vehicle or adaptive fit to many vehicle types. We have helped with many adaptive applications like Busses, Porsche's, Boats, Fords and many others.

    With Dual Rectifiers, the current load is spread over a much larger area so the benefits include: less heat build up, less current loss, higher amperage output when hot. Plus, the service duty and life increases substantially. When the rectifier heats up the diodes won't pass as much amperage through them, therefore, the amperage output drops. With our double rectifier alternator you have twice the amperage carrying capacity and double the cooling surface area to keep the diodes cool. This all adds up to......
    MORE POWER, LESS HEAT PROBLEMS and GREATER RELIABILITY.

    Looks badass to me. I think my stock alternator is headin south so this plus an Optima Yellow top would be just the ticket until I get a second and maybe 3rd battery installed. I know the price is a little steep but what do y'all think? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I agree! The 140 amp from Summit is probably plenty.

    Most Cs130 alternators can be built to 180 amps by any reputable rebuilder, most of them even carry the "iceburg" rear cover. The shop near me will do mine for 150 bucks and that includes all new internals.
