I got tired of messing around with the externally regulated alternator after a few years (too many flat battery/jump start experiences) and swapped to a used internally regular alternator  instead.

I picked up a Bosch 120a alternator from AES for about $280 (trade price, from memory) and that thing is grunty as. Even crawling around beach hop at idle with lights/stereo/airbag compressors going we had no issues.

cheers 

that gives me a bit of an idea how much they would be

was thinking about the ones from STA and other speed shops as they are half that cost but was also thinking they would be shit.

might also see how much i can get them at trade from AES and pan Pacific.

This is exactly why I haven't yet wanted to fit the 4-barrel manifold I have. 

haha yeah 

rocker covers off 

pushrods/rockers/waterpump/dizzy all need to come off

not too bad of a job once you've pulled it off a few times haha
