Yes, just a shade over 14v as indicated on the instrument cluster voltmeter.

Default Alternator Output...

I have a 2004 Buick Leasbre with the 3800 in it and a Delphi Alt. It runs 15.1-15.3 when cold and a when hot with a factory Delphi Battery. I replaced the battery with a 1.5 yrd old Everstart Maxx and it was just fine. A battery will normally start screaming you at around 16v.
