Best alternator to use for om606?

I was wondering what the goto/top amperage alternator is for the om606 turbo?

Looks like factory Bosch alt (part #AL0765X) is a 115amp. Following this in curiosity if anyone has used it on an OM603... as my 74amp unit doesn't seem to tow the line with all the accessories on (window defrost + heater at idle engine speed).

I run a 143A from a 1994 W140 S500 on my car. Be sure to use an overrunning alternator pulley for anything over 80A if you want to save your timing cover and tensioner assembly.
