I should have revised the order of my list in my post.  I agree with you that the alternator should be the first upgrade along with the Big 3.  That is the plan for my current project build.  I have, however, had bad luck with high output alternators.  I shouldn't reflect all of my bad experiences in my posts. 
Good Luck!

well, going back to the house example....if you upgrade the breaker you are likley gonna have your wires getting hot and (possibly, if they are cheap wires) melting the insulation.
I think there are too many people here who think that caps are horrible inventions and should never ever be used. I have a cap in my car. Why? Because I got it from a friend for $15. Now, I KNOW that it isn't gonna "fix" electrical problems (I really don't have any, my amp only pulls 60 amps at max, so the headlights just dim a little when it is cranked). Now, the cost of a HO alternator, or to get mine rewound is at LEAST $150, probally closer to $200, and then I have to install it. I was looking for a cheap solution to help smooth out the peak draw in my amp. It works, quite well actually.
Caps are usually used as band-aids, but sometimes that is all you need. There is such a thing as overkill, and some people do have budgets.
Some people need to chill out about it sometimes...

Ha ha! Not on this website, lol. People always go over board when it comes to the caps and "The Mustang Incedient" People do need to chill, a majority of people who ask about them are newbies, we want to welcome people to car audio and to this website, not scare them off. I myself will be running a 12 farad cap in my car... why? because it is for looks... do I think it will help at all? a little. Just help newbies understand how stuff works, dont jump their ass for asking a question... we were all there at one time, some, like myself, more recent than others. Now back to the post.... Mobile Spec has a great cap, it comes in a chrome color, so if your going for show, good call! If you need any info on it, PM me! Good luck man!
