Re: Alternator Conversion?
My answer would be - probably - it really depends on that stereo. The 10SI may struggle to keep everything going at idle. Personally, I'd go with a CS130. The effort is about the same and the conversion is well documented. You might have to fabricate an upper bracket and the lower bracket choice will depend on if you have accessory holes in the front of the heads (stock heads did not have accessory holes). In any event, you'll only have to do the conversion once so the effort kind of pays for itself in the long run.
