An Alternator Better Than the Stock One on a 2010 LT

Mine seems to be dying, or is just not powerful enough to support my aftermarket electronics. Just looking for something better. Post or PM ne if you have one or have an idea of where I can get what I need.

What's the additional load that all of your extras are putting on the system? Some people use capacitors for audio, but I'd think upgrading the alternator is generally a better idea.

I'm not sure what its pulling. It's not pulling anything anymore since they don't get power anymore.

Ever done a rebuild kit? As long as your stator is functional, you can get a 160a rebuild kit, designed for high end electronics. Cheaper than a heavy duty new one. Should cost somewhere in the mid $120s for a rebuild/upgrade kit.
