High Output Alternator Benefits Some vehicles require additional power for optimal performance. When that's the case, replacing a standard stock alternator with a high output alternator is a wise decision. High output alternators produce more power for vehicles demanding more energy usage. Here are times when a high output alternator make sense.High performance and off-road vehicles - If your vehicle has more accessories drawing power, such as custom electronics or high voltage headlights, you may need an alternator with a higher amp capacity. High-end audio systems - When you have a booming audio system with powerful amplifiers and subwoofers, a high output alternator will supply adequate power to keep the music playing. Frequent battery or alternator failures - Overtaxing the capacity of a standard alternator can shorten the life of the battery and alternator itself. If you've had to replace these components frequently, you might want to consider a high output alternator.

6.5L(395) V8 (Diesel). Q: Can I use a high amp alternator to revive my very weak or nearly dead battery? A: Batteries and alternators work together as a team. If one is weak, it adversely impacts the other.
You should never use a new alternator, high amp or stock, to recharge a weak battery. It often will prove too taxing and stress the new alternator. When installing a new alternator, it's often recommended to also replace the battery if it's older or weakly charged. Q: Can a high amp alternator cause damage to a battery?
The capacity to generate higher amperage will not damage a battery. A: An alternator that generates more amperage will require more horsepower to operate, but in most cases it won't require so much horsepower that it would adversely affect the engine. Q: Will a high amp alternator mess up the computer system in a vehicle? Assuming the alternator is installed correctly, a high amp alternator shouldn't negatively affect a vehicle's computerized system.Q: How will a high amp alternator affect fuel consumption? A: There are many variables that affect fuel consumption.
An alternator that runs more efficiently can potentially reduce fuel consumption, and in many cases a high amp alternator will provide greater efficiency. Q: What's a common mistake people make when installing a high amp alternator? A: Not using appropriately sized positive and ground cables connecting the alternator to the battery terminals is always a mistake. Improvising with cables that are close but not exactly right is an error that could lead to problems. Q: What does it mean to oversize an alternator?
A: Oversizing is the act of installing an alternator that produces more amperage output so that you use a smaller percentage of its overall output. Using an exceptionally high percentage of electrical load on an alternator can stress it, which can often shorten both alternator and battery life.
If you oversize with a high amp alternator and use only 35 to 50 percent of its rated output, instead of a higher percentage with a standard stock alternator, you can often extend both alternator and battery lifex.
