Running dual alternators

I think i want to run two-alternators. How exactly do i go about doing that? Obviously i'll need a bracket cut and replace my drive belt, but what about the wiring harness, how would running two alts. hookup to the factory harness?

you'd run them in parallel to each other, AFTER the voltage regulators. Have you thought about just re-winding your current one? generally you can get about 50% more amps...

If you to run them in series, you'd be putting ~28 volts into your 12v battery.
