Default High Output Alternators

I've been on the prowl for a HO alt for nearly 2 years now, searching online, NASIOC, local parts stores, talking to mechanics, and really getting alot of mixed results. I have upgraded from the stock WRX alt to the 90 AMP STi version but I still drop to 12's in the voltage when I turn on my AC + Inverter or Headlights + Inverter.. Wierd thing is that it happens more when it's hot and when it's cool (at night) I don't need the AC but I do use all the lights and the inverter without a voltage drop.. I wonder if the STi alt just sucks?

I'm hoping to get 120+ output as I intend to have an embeded car-pc and dual battery setup with monitored alarm and high-end audio..

might want to try a Forester Alternator, or search in this forum and in the car audio forum, there is someone selling a HO alternator, I think its rated at 135A. Not 100% sure.

funny with all the crap that I run, I still don't see a voltage drop. *knock on wood* but yeah, I've been keeping an eye out on different alternatives.

Can't seem to find any alternators for sale on NASIOC and while Stinger apparently has an application to fit my car, I can't find a Canadian reseller..

Anyone? Buller?
