    to build on this topic... would a higher output alternator fix that wierd pulsating you get when you are idling at a stop sign or stoplight in drive (autos)? I getting this wierd pulsating in power and i think my alternator is about to die on me, got a new battery and it still does it.

    No it wont, have your alt tested. Also check your battery cables and ensure there clean and tight, also check the harness on the Alt itself.

    If your car only requires 50 amps at a given time, both a 100 amp or 150 amp alt will still only put out the required 50 amps. But if your alt is going bad it could still cause issues but just replacing it with the stock unit should take care of it if that is the case.

    I tested my system with one of those Snap-on Bat/Starter/alternator tester machines and it says everything passed. Im still thinking the Alts bad though. Just a wierd feeling i got. Its old too so i figure its about time to replace anywho.
