I have a 03 Pathy, does anyone know what the stock alternator amp output is? And where I can possibly get a High Output Alternator from?

Thank you. I recently installed a customer light bar with 4 fog lights. Just to be on the safe side i want to upgrade to alternator.

Why do you feel the present alternator wont cope with the load?
Whats the total wattage of the fogs?

A general check is to start the motor and let it idle with no lights on.
Then turn on the fogs, note the brightness.
Then rev the motor to around 3000rpm and check if theres any major improvement in the brightness of the fogs.
If there is, your may need to uprgrade.

You can install HID bulbs to your fog lights or spots. they require half of the power halogens need and if you choose white color their light output is more than twice. So stock alternator can cope with them.

Ill try the idol test and see what happens. HID bulbs would be awesome. If you know where I can find some for a good price let me know. Thank you.
