The trick is output at idle - 2000 rpm. Most don't measure up. Above 2k sure but that's not where you need it. The quality aftermarket like mechman will but a lot of stock rewinds won't. The sequoia unit supposed to do over 100 amp at 800rpm.

I think Biggu is selling a MechMan HO Alternator in the classifieds here and mechman always had a solid reputation on caraudio.com an realmofexcursion forums. So that's an option as well if you don't want to mod an alternator to fit.

hes right i did the same, but i got a 250 AMP alternator and i works great. just buy it of an online auction and it should suffice!
ranging from 140$ - 325$

best of luck to you!

Damn, the 1UZ alternators bolt on to the 2J? Had no idea..

I ordered an upgraded 160 amp alternator already but for the price of the LS 400 nator's at my local pnp I could easily send it back and save $150.

I've got the alt sitting down at the shop, car's been down for NA-T build for the last couple months. At some point I'll be swapping it on.
