What year car and which fuse? Are you speaking of the fusible link. If so keep in mind that you may need to upgrade the wiring from the alternator if it is undersized for the application. Many alternators are actually capable of putting out more than what they are rated for, one value often tossed around is a 30% overcurrent capability. I think that may fit here as for example on an 07 and up it appears tha the fusible link is 140 amps with a 110 amp alternator. If this holds up than a typical 150 amp alternator would need a consideration of wiring, etc. of about 195 amps.
It also depends on why you are putting on a performance alternator. If you are adding an audio system which is one common reason then you may want to look at a dual output alternator and set up a second system for the audio and leave the other as is.
