MSD and stock alternator

Can I use a stock alternator with an MSD set up (6AL) or do I need to upgrade amprage? Want to keep the stock look and want to keep External reg. set up.

Re: MSD and stock alternator

I have a stock alternator in my car. Well actually its the stock 63 amp version but it ran fine with the stock one before I installed an electric fan. If you don't have a radio with big amps or an electric fan you should be fine. Just make sure the battery is fully charged every spring when you first start driving the car and you'll be fine. The msd is really sensitive to low battery voltage.
