Bolt in Alternator Upgrade

I am just wondering what is out there for upgraded alternators(more than 95 amps) that would just bolt right in to where the stock one is without changing anything else. I am big into car audio and need to do this before I get more amplifiers.

Just looked and they are $23.50 from the junkyard I frequent.

No problem. I'm going to the junkyard myself this weekend. If I find a good looking one, I might get one myself.
