whats involved in changing from a SI series to a CS series? I'm running a 10 SI now at a 100 amps but what I'm reading is a CS series works better, or would I be better off just buying a 130 amp SI series.

Functionally there is no difference. They both have a big terminal for B+ and most CS130s have a 5 prong plug on the side, but only two wires are used. One of the two connects to the same B+ lug and the brown/red wire connects to the GEN light. The front of the mounting bosses to the midline of the V-pulley matches as well.

But I believe you need a new bracket. Check out the techref section of this site and follow the links to the "alternator swap" HOWTO. They show a great little bracket there. Problem is GM wants $81 for it. But in another thread here in this forum someone mentions gmpartsdirect having it for $51. I'll pay $51 for it, but I haven't made the deal yet.
