Well, I found out the problem.

I don't know if any of you remember, but I made a post about a "whirring" noise comming from the engine. Well, yesterday I found out what it was. It is my alternator. Yay.

So, should I just go get a stock alternator from the junkyard, or should I jump for a higher powered one? If so, what would you guys recommend?

I think I'm just going to get another stock one. I really don't plan on running more then the 2 speakers I have in it now. lol. As for lights, maybe 2 more, but I doubt it.

What's a good place to purchase it from? I tried summit and all they have are higher powered ones...which I don't want. Idea's?

Ok then. I was just asking. :P

I'll head over to autozone. If they are asking more then $200 for a stock one, I'm just going to order the 130amp alternator on Summit for $220.

Thanks for the help guys.
