Probably not going to have much left over once that'* done, but I can let you know when I figure it out. My lights are starting to dim with the new IDMax so a bit of a power wire upgrade is in order.
For the record, your alternator'* pulley is smaller than the crank pulley, which means it spins faster, and can produce a great deal of current even at idle. a 1000W amp will draw ~71amps at 14V. Until you've upgraded your wiring, there'* not really a point to upgrading the alternator.
