I don't have the answer, but would like to know! I've run laptops off of inverters in the past, but on much newer cars. I've got an '82 300td and don't want to hurt it!

What would you like to run on your alt? My friend has a 98 VW GTI. and that puppy only puts about 55 - 60 Amps. And he has 2 12's Single Rockford 500/1 amp. And a aftermarket headunit. And his car still runs fine.
