It all depends on what additional electronics you are going to mount in your car! If you are doing a kickin stereo, power windows, power locks, Air compressor for air bags, Power convertible top, Halogen head lamps, under car neon, and all that jazz you need as much power as you can get and I would recommend upgrading to a high output alternator and possibly even dual alternators or batteries. If you are building a close to factory car and the car didn't require a Heavy duty alternator to begin with you could get away with under driving it. If your building a car that is pro street stripped down to the bare minimal creature conforts you may be able to get away with a mini 35 amp alternator that would reduce load on the engine and save weight.

Looking at your Car Domain web site it looks like you are building a Donk which generally means you are going to be installing a lot of additional electronics. Unfortunately those large rims also suck down horsepower. In general the donk theme does not sit well for any kind of racing whether it be straight line speed or twisty turns since your center or gravity gets raised also. In general Donks are poor efficiency vehicles. They are built for bling and on the opposite side of the spectrum from a stripped down car built for speed!

lol ok it sort of bothers me that u call donk a theme, when its a nickname for the impala symbol so a donk would b a 71-75 caprice or impala please note.....and large rims sucking hp?lol wow ok and bling? uh no, most street rods have chrome, aluminum, electronicz an hp....umm have u heard of k.i.s.s.? lol maybe not so ty for the part about underdriving a vehicle with alot of electronics is a bad idea.......

Not to get into an arguement or anything, but look up Hi-Riser (automobile) on Wikipedia and this is what you will get:

Hi-Risers are a type of highly customized automobile, typically an inexpensive American-built sedan modified by significantly increasing the ground clearance and adding large-diameter wheels with low-profile tires. Depending on the model and build year, autos customized in this manner can be labeled "donk," "box," or "bubble."

wow so they put it in a book or on web an its right? really dont care about arguing because is a well know fact that rods always ran larger rims now if sum choose to go supersized like 24-30" well thats a statement or what u would call bling......
for years now names like box have been for 77-90 caprice and impalaz u know the box style body....bubble a 91-96 caprice or impala AND MY FAVORITE DONK a 71-73/74 fullsize and a glasshouse is a 74-76 fullsize...
i've heard people say they have a cutlass on 18'z but they wanna donk it, that is bullshyt at its best....stop listenin to people who dont own the vehicles....a cutlass is a cutlass no matter what size rim it wears, ty but no ty u sound ridiculous quoting a site that was written within the last year ......dunno how they do it where your from but down here we have nicknames for all cars....an callin a car a donk because of the rim size is, well retarded......carry on.....if u choose....

for reference check out this site it may actually teach u something..... eastcoastryders.com or kingofthestreet.com ty
cardomain.com also
