Depending on year and motor size both are regulated differently. Delco is internally regulated and nippondenso is ECU regulated. Neither will overcharge if wired properly. By that I mean stock wiring.

Its a 94 4.0L , everything is stock thats being upgraded, I just got a regular die hard battery from sears and I ordered this for an alternator

and I got a wire upgrade kit that follows the same path of the stock wiring but just is bigger.

So its regulated by the alternator and or ecu to not overcharge then ?
