Default can i trust this to work as advertised.?

this is not a audio question or mechanical problem or electrical.

i just want to know if this alternator in the ebay link below can be trusted to be putting out 200 amps.? the guy states its a cs 144 gm original that has been beefed up to 200 amps from the stock 140 apms it originally was.?

can i trust this to be 200 amps like said.?

Default alt

I don't think that one will work on your car. You want a cs -144 alt that has a larger stator winding and beefed up diodes.
