SETTING UP PROJECT 600-HP 7.3L WITH A 300-AMP ALTERNATOR FROM MEAN GREEN

TECH DISCUSSION

Unless you’re one of the few who actually has the “Ambulance Package” that door sticker always warns us about, your charging system isn’t really designed to handle many more electronic devices than are already installed in the truck from the factory. Adding an aftermarket stereo with subs?

Some LED lights? Or maybe a winch? The OEM alternator may be able to handle one or two of those things, but not all of them, and definitely not for very long. A good high-output alternator and good set of batteries is a must for any vehicle with multiple added electronic accessories.
