So i just found out that i just bought a 150 amp alternator for my 2012 R/T. so ive been doing my research since i found this out and found that r/t's come with 160 amp alternators. will 10 amps make a difference? i am in a unique situation because i am stationed overseas and have to make a an 8 hr drive to another country in a week and a half. i am unable to purchase a new one because it will take an min of 2 weeks to ship here. can anyone shed some light on this. thanks.

If you don't have heated seats, you might be able to get away with that.

running both heated seats, rear defog & heated mirrors would probably have the highest current draw of accessories running all at once w/ headlights on.

Some cars with the cold weather group with heated wheel and seats even had a 180 amp alternator. Don't know if it is used any more, SRT and 392 cars have a 220.

Wonder if they need the higher amperage as it takes more amps to crank those higher compression engines?
