Alternator turn on sooner?

Hey guys. Now that the 98 Camaro alternator is under load (just got Vintage air up and running) the engine bogs and lights dim at 11.5 V before the thing kicks in a goes to 13.9 volts. Anyway to get it to turn on sooner?

It currently has a .5 Ohm resistor in line per suggesetion of other members.

PS, larger alternators simply don't fit.

Thanks.

PS takes 3-4 mins to turn on after start.

1968 Convertible L92 VVT project, Hotchkiss lowering front & rear.
