Duratec alternator

I have a 2005 zx5 ses was wondering if anyone has put a large case 6g alternator on a duratec. Been doing some searching I found these http://alternatorparts.com/6g-series...lternator.html the large case alts are much heavier duty. Also found that the Mitsubishi alternator from a ford truck using the same mounting method would output 165 or 215 amps depending on the version, and I can get one of those for $50 from the wreckers. Leme know your thoughts I need a higher output alternator, but not at the massive price of a dc alt, mechman, or the $165 for a 200 amp upgrade kit for small case amp from aspwholesale (that won't output near that high). A little info on my system 18" fi sp4, x5000 re audio amp, 4 8" mtx mids and 4 4" mtx tweets.
