Wish I still had a welder...
For wiring You would just run it parallel with the other stock alternator.
basiclly yes. It is in theory quite easy. most of the time was spent on the piece that looks like a streched U and rounding everything off to make it look nice. But the main problem is getting everything to line up... the shark fin piece had to clear the alt fan, part of the stock support had to be cut to allow space for the new alt, the stock engine mount bolts had to be grinded on one side to hold that bracket correctly ect ect. And we havent even had a belt on it yet.
Im not running parallel with the stock alt because its a externally regulated ohio gen. So i will be able to change the voltage as nessicary.... Its going to be hooked up to 2 kinetik HC16v batts (currently mounted in the wheel well)

Question- Could you possible tell me the amp output of the stock alt in a SS/SC and one more, will upgrading my batt. make a difference, say a yellow top (not running two, just replacing the current one)
stock alt is 105 amp.... and upgrading to a better battery would definitly help. I would recommend a carquest NGT extreme if your on a budget (equivilant to the yellow top but cheaper... i run one for my stock electrical) or a kintik if you can afford it
