California has a law that says you cannot tamper with anything that may effect emmissions. Adding a second alternator does increase load and there will be a decrease in fuel mileage which in turn may increase polution. In any case, it is a modification to the engine and will raise the attention of the smog shop. When they don't find the exemption they will send me to arbitration and they will decide if it's legal or not. Is it worth all that. Not for me.
