Before you even spend the money on a HO alt, I would look into the big 3 (I think there is a write up on CT). If you arent familiar with that, it is upgrading the wiring for:
1 Battery Neg to Chassis
2 Alt to Battery pos
2 Chassis to engine.
From my reading, this seems to fix people problems (dimming lights) most of the time. If this doesnt fix it, then look into a HO alt...if that doesnt fix it...then think about a cap, or a dual battery setup.
OP, I rally have no idea whats causing your problem...look through the manual for your cap if you really want to keep it...some like the "bling factor", not my cup of tea though) and make sre you didnt miss something. And triple check your connection points. I had a similiar prob wth an amp do to a poor crimp on the remote wire.
