it would help, but not every company makes them for every car. Ford Aspires and Chevy Metros never really made it in the import racing scene. The thing is that its a confirmed 10% increase in mpg's in some vehicles to not run an alternator at all. That is a very tough number to beat with any other method, or combined methods (other than driver mod)
