she is already having a little headlight dimming issue. i told her to start with a capacitor but she doensn't want to go that route yet. she is planning on tv's in the head rest, a screen in the dash and a ps2 for the kiddies (me!) in the back seat. and i'm sure she is going to add more boom. the stock alt is 120 amp. i figure that is going to have to be beefed up as well. i'm not sure if she is planning on adding any lighting effects or not.

I added my second battery by removing my airbox

I'm still using my original alternator and I'm having no problem charging them.

The batteries that I'm using are Optima Yellow Tops, which have a quick recycle.
