I thought I might try to get a discussion going on high output alternators for an all trac. What is the highest amperage alternator that can be installed on a 3sgte with minimal modification to the mounting brackets?

170Amp no modification needed.

I run this one, no probs, works great. Ask for the smaller pulley when you buy one.

I just got a quote from them for a 160A. Have you noticed any decrease in engine performance after installing it? Also do you happen to know what the amperage is at idle?

Idle amperage is roughly 40% of full rating for most alternators. So for a 160A alt your looking at around ~64A idle.

Thanks for the info.
