Default Battery go boom

Well, I did an uppipe/downpipe install and went stage 2 last week but not after breaking the "half moon" cylinder head plug and having my engine catch on fire. I replaced the plug and valve cover gasket and all is holding up well except for some smoke from the uppipe still burning off under close supervision.

My new problem, from what I've read, is a shot voltage regulator. My battery light is on, my accessport reads an average voltage of 17.8V, my battery is seeping acid and one of my headlights just blew. So replacing the alternator seems simple enough, what would be the most inexpensive route to procure one by tomorrow, dealership, NAPA...$? Also, is it necessary to replace the battery as well?
