No, because the alternator uses very few hp, you can spin it with your finger!

The BIG hp hogs are

1) the Compressor
2) the power steering pump
3) the water pump.

the alternator is small fry.

You can lose a couple of hp to the alternator & STILL make out like a bandit with the other three.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
