M47 is weaker but it doesn't matter if you don't have a turbo. You'll need the driveshaft (At least the front half, iirc.) but you can use the old clutch/flywheel/etc.

Just did one. .2v drop on positive, .5v negative with everything turned on at idle. The alt ground cable is a lot skinnier than the positive, I bet beefing it up would help a little.
