may be internal voltage regulator (inside alternator), have your charging system checked

87,075

Could be a "flying open" in the replacement alternator, and that means when it reaches a certain rpm a circuit opens up shutting the charge rate down, or the computer is turning the alternator off as it is sensing a very high engine demand and is shutting off accessories until the load ceases, just like the wide open throttle switch use to do for air conditioning. Your a trusting soul going those speeds with an obsolete vehicle. What is the speed rating for the tires? How are your brakes?
