There's a few on here that'd know what to do because some like callymat and sealysonic have some power thirsty set-ups.

You'll get a good reply to your quiery soon enough bud.  ;)

Calibras were typically fitted with alternators with a rating of 70 or 90 amps, although some models were fitted with alternators rated at 100 or even 120 amps.  AFAIK most of the alternators on similar models are interchangeable.

Try: http://www.vehicle-electrics-online.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=399&keyword=&manufacturer_id=0&Itemid=35&orderby=product_sku&limit=30&limitstart=90

BTW you may also want to upgrade your battery and the in-line fuse to your amp!

well...what we have hear...?......whats ur set up m8...? i have 4 amps 2 screens and a ps2....looked after a 2.5 farad cap....however i would not last long without my engine running...if ur thinking of running ur kit without the engine running then a OPTIMA (?) battery would help u.....but im unshure in this department.
