Hi everyone. My good mechanic friend confirmed that my alternator is smoked. Metal powder shavings on the back. I'm running an audio amp. Should I go with a stronger 60amp alternator, or will it start frying the rest of my electrical system? Its an all original design. Thanks for the help.

Have you upgraded any of the other charging system wiring in your car? What voltage regulator are you running? What other modifications have you done the the wiring in your car? It is very easy to put in an amp that has an output that your stock wiring is not rated to carry and end up bruning your car to the ground.
