Works perfect? For now. But as stated above, good luck with that! It'* not a question of IF, but WHEN you kill your alternator. It will happen. And a 160 probably isn't enough. I'd go to www.mralternator.com and get a 200 amp. If he doesn't have it listed, he'll build it for you.

Let me clarify.....you WILL kill your alternator, and it will very likely take a battery out with it when it goes.
That is a lot of dough to drop on an alternator... are they garunteed for life like the autozone suckers are? I mean i upgraded to the 140, but im going with a two battery setup... i would probably end up just replacing mine more often for free than dropping that much money on it.

Good luck on that battery/alternator problem. I'm with Bill...it'* a matter of time. Take the precautions though. Batteries very infrequently explode. Don't allow yourself to be one of the statistics.

Hey I'm curious before the 3 battery setup, what did your car voltage say in the DIC?
