:confused: I have some issues with the 100 amp alternator upgrade...don't know why it keeps tripping my 40 amp breaker any suggestions?
I installed a new 6 gauge line from the alternator to the battery terminal in my starter relay and it still throws the breaker...

You are pulling more than 40 amps on that circuit the breaker feeds.
