    Sure you can upgrade with no problem. Alternators, especially good ones come with "internal regulators" as to not overcharge your battery...although you would also upgrade your battery to a better one. I find them to be the very best

    The alternator is designed to replace current used from the battery. You should replace the battery with a higher CCA/RC and if you can, go head and replace the Alternator.

    A WORD OF ADVISE...........due to manufacturers design, you may be very limited in the replacement size of the alternator. Available mounting area limited, clocking may have to be changed and re-routing wires.

80 amps alt for 1snf batt?
