Does you alternator put out 165 at idle or do you have raise your RPM. If you experience bad low voltage then something's wrong with your install. IF must be some bad ground connections, wire, fuse, battery and etc. I did go back and double to check everthing install. By the way, the guy said it put 160 amp but did you saw exactly he said. Sometime i don't trust these local alternator shop.

You have now identified your problem. I had a 200 amp alt built like that at a local shop that showed a little over 200a on his machine but it didn't put out crap at idle and after it got warm it lost power too.

Get a real HO alt (MechMan, Power Master, Ohio Gen etc...) and go with a 200-250 amp model with a overdrive pulley to up the idle output. A dual kit would be awesome but with what you have maybe not necessary. My air ride pulls around a 100a when the 4 viair 480's are running plus the system and batteries just covered up the problem til i could get the real HO alts in.
