It is on eliminating alternator tha you Eco guys start to loose me. Battery voltage is 12.5 or less. Running voltage is 14-14.5. Electronics work better on higher voltage. If you're that concerned about alternators, get a tiny little 30 amp alternator and put it on a large pulley. Spin it at half the speed. Or Install an under drive pulley, that will reduce your water pump losses too.
