The DB Electrical alternator that I installed has performed flawlessly all summer long. It provides a solid 13-14 all the way through the power curve, and charges nicely even at idle. I have ran my stereo for long stints (reason why I upgraded) and it charges my batteries great underway. Interestingly enough, I had removed my back seat and rear floor board for another project, and look what I found.....my original alt bracket spacer rollin around. Guess the original owner must have "misplaced it".....
