I have a mitsubishi lancer and kinda wanting to upgrade my alternator. Due to a 300$ minimum cost that nathan at excessiveamperage told be about because it is a mitsubishi I am looking at other alternatives. I have heard of people "strapping" a couple alts together. I can pick up another 80amp stock 2002 Lancer alternator for about $40 and get it installed. Would that work?
You ralize they're gonna have to fabricate new brackets for the second alternator, and that'll probably cost you more than $300 in labor. Newer cars today have everything jammed into such a small engine compartment, that there's not much room left for a second alt.
