One thousand dollars!?!?!?!??

I could see one hundred I'm going to assume you meant that.

There is no substitute for a higher powered alternator. The electricity has to come from somewhere.

Alternator installation is basic in my opinion and I believe you could do it yourself (I did).

If you decide to pay the money, they wont be taking your car apart and there will only be your old alternator and maybe some wiring left over. Like I's basic.

Check the thread under "accessories" on this forum. There's a topic there already on alternator. You will find a link for getting HO alternator at a cheaper price.
Anyone wanting $1000 for an alternator install is either a moron or a crook.
Ask they guy EXACTLY why it's costing $1000. Tell him to break down the number. Make him explain how he got $1000.
