At this point if you have the parts laying there in front of you... It couldn't hurt, that would be another possibility ruled out

As the RPM drops so does the output of the alt. So that shouldnt be a prob.

Give the ICM a try, cant lose anything. A fuel pressure tester is like $40

I would keep the 140 AMP alt. They may swap if the clock is similar (position where the wires exit the alt)

Thats very Normal for that alternator... Your 88 will do about 14v all of the time... The 95 will se low point for short periods, say 12.5 for a brief few and then back to 13.0-13.5 ..... On cold start you should see 14v... Sounds like the alternator is functioning as it should

I have the same problem like I said in the earlier post, my car starts fine than dies several seconds later. It will keep doing it over and over.

I think mine is the fuel pump/relay problem.
