I probably should have searched google first. There is actually a company that makes them already it seems. I never would've thought to search "turbo alternator" and actually see results. They say they are for diesels, but I'm going to contact them anyway and see what they say. All I was thinking of running was my alternator anyway because I've seen the results of others who have went alternatorless and have seen pretty substantial gains.
