There really isn't a wrong one. Both will work. The one with more amps will recharge the battery faster after a start up. If you make many short trips you may want the faster recharge.

yes , more is better the size remains the same , and the bolting up should remain the same , the dif is in the copper windings and the electronics and would only make your electric system stronger
