Another way is to get an extra OEM connector and plug it into the alt on one and and your car's wire harness's connector on the other. That way you do not cut wires on your car's harness.

I like the DC/DC converter, tho. Smart, if slightly more costly.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
