May I ask why you want a 220 amp alternator? The battery will charge no more quickly, or are you putting in a high-draw audio system or something? For example my Toyota will only feed 5 amps to the battery regardless. Too fast a charge will not hold and can ruin battery

OK, Yeah I know this is just about impossible to follow. I have been staring until I got cross-eyed at it but see 4 wires. Click for full screen
