    My Dual alternator setup is factory....lots of amperage output, but a pain to get at the CPS (Cam Positioning Sensor)....however, I did manage to get the CPS replaced.....

    ZERO reason for a dual alternator setup unless you are running a lot of accessories (ambulance) zapping power.

    Even then, I would just get a higher amp unit, rather than running two.

    I wanted to put the Ambulance package Alternator on my 94 7.3 IDIT but the parts store told me the mount was different, could I still mount one if I got the bracket for it ?
