An Optima red top would work nicely (about $100) along with an engine grounding kit ($30-$100)

yeah u need a better alternator, once i get my swap done i'll have a 135amp alt for sale thats basically new, it wont fit on my new engine, it produces twice the amount of available amps. Its from alterstart.com, prolly sell for 100 - 150. I put a yellow top optima in my car, for your info
