    all the ebay ones are are a different regulator...at least thats what i was told...and if thats the case im sure its real hard on the alternator being that the field around it would still be the same size

    lol well i was just told this...have you actually seen a real alternator rated at 200 amps...ambulances use two to equal 200 amps and what not...so im sure something the size of the stock one is prolly gonna die soon

    This is what I got from them:

    "Its more than just the regulator that is changed. It's the rotor, stator, basically every thing internally is changed out to get 200 amps."

    What do you think?

    I actually bought that high output one and installed it today. I also got a new serpentine belt and that was quite a fine bitch getting on by myself.. I can definitely tell a difference (or so I think), the headlights and the dash lights seem somehow brighter (or they don't dim period) and my idle seems to be really good, although it never was all that bad.
