I looked it up at work, I think it was something crazy like that. Might have even been 155 or 165.

Wait I see you have a 2010. I imagine it's around the same amps though.

do you have any car audio batteries or just the stock one?
I have two amps, about 1400rms total and with only one shuirken bt-20 I had very little voltage drop. I just recieved a bt45 also that im going to add in and I expect almost no voltage drop.

Yes stock in front and a 55 AH in trunk right now. Drop to 13.5. But I have 2 102AH that will be going in the trunk for next setup.

I was hoping the stocker was 110 amp alt. That way it seems I was getting so much more with a 270 amp HO alt.. But if stocker is 150 then im only gaining 120 amps.

Kinda considering only doing a 2200 rms setup now and stick with a 200 amp alt and single 100AH battery.

But was planning on 4000 rms, 270 amp alt, and 2 102AH in trunk.

Yeah, Singer told me to just stick with my stock since it is already 150 amps.

Nice! From Rockauto it looks like any other alternator puts out more the stock one
