It will run quieter, and last longer. 5-10 horsepower is a good match for a 30-50 amp alternator. Home Power Magazine has had some excellent articles about building one of these. There's another excellent article on how to build one at .
Focusing primarily on the supply of alternative energy equipment including the legendary JKSon Lister type diesel engines, ST alternator heads in single and three phase.
