Have a 97 Prostar LT1 upgrading to 135 amp alternator for stereo need advice on alternator wiring. Have three wire alternator but the question is if the alternator power output wire is upgraded and attached to the starter does the original orange power wire need to be attached?

Thanks
Tom

Assuming your new, upgraded charging wire is sufficient to carry the full amperage of the new alternator, it doesn't need to be attached but it won't hurt to attach it either.
