DC Power 190 Amp Alternator

My alternator died on me last week so I decided to invest in a DC Power 190 amp alternator for my '02 7.3. Installed and cranked up. My battery light went right out. I let it idle for about 10 minutes and checked at the posts with my meter. I was getting 14.23-14.24 on the passenger side battery and 14.21-14.22 at the driver's side battery. I will give it a week and comment on anything noteworthy. It's built like a tank. I hope it lasts for quite some time. Anyone else with this alternator please chime in with your opinions since you have had one. Thanks
