Thanks, I did check the RPO code and it is the same as yours.  I was just wondering because I have a CB and wanting to replace my linear amp with a bigger one that draws 57 amps max.

No problem.  Only reason I know is because I recently changed my serpetine belt and needed to know what I had to buy the right belt

very.  just not right for my application.  I need the amperage at idle (550-650)  this one likes 750 and up, I also need one that likes to rev over 6000 rpm all the time but this one likes 5800 and lower

>>>>edit>>>>
Okay, it helps if I read and comprehend as well.  The powermaster 200 should be able to do at least 100amps at idle hot.  I don't have his email or number, there is someone by the name of Dominick that builds quality high amp alternators.  Search for Dominick and alternator in the forums

<<<<<<<end edit<<<<<<



650 AMPS???

You need an AC generator instead.  Then attach your DC converter power supplies to it.
