Post Big amp alternator

Guys,
I just wanted to share something I learned with yall. I installed a big stereo when I first bought my car and always had problems with the lights dimming when I hit huge bass notes. I bought a 1.5 farad capacitor and this helped slightly. The biggest thing that I did that worked was redoing my alternator. On the 6 cylinders I know the alternator is the same design as some GM's. The alternator case is the DELCO 130D. I went to my local starter supply shop and got me 250 amp stator,new armature,and front and rear bearings. I painted my case and took everything apart and put it back together.It is pretty simple but if you don't feel like opening it up, you can simply mail it to DC Starter Services on 1909 Glenwood in Denton,tx.I had 2 diff friends with accords ship them there and they paid 100 plus shipping. It comes with a 1 year warranty from them.Just thought I would pass the info along.After the alternator upgrade I have no dimming issue.I have even noticed the capacitor isn't even neccesary anymore I just left it because it was already installed.

P.S. You can buy a 300 or 350 amp stator but they run too hot under our hoods and blow pretty quick.(I blew a 350 amp in 3 months)so just stick with 250.

Forgot to mention, is your car an 04-07? cuz I think the 03 altys are different on the v6's. I just don't wanna go buy all the parts for this or send it out only to find that my alty is different. Thanks again man!

man I have no idea what this means...but I do know both the 03 and 04 alternator I pulled apart were both AC DELCO 130 D frame body and that is what I used to order the parts as well(stator,armature,and bearings front and rear)
I really think if you have an 04-07 it can be done as well. I spoke with one of the rebuilders there today and he said he can modify for Big AMPerage ANY alternator....

I thought the 04-07 were a denso, and the 03 is an AC delco. I am not sure what the differences are, but I have been told that they are not interchangable. Maybe someone can chime in with that info.
