I would want to know that the output at idle is the same or better. Just because the peak output rating is higher doesn't mean the idle output is. I would be concerned that it is in fact reduced to accommodate the combined charge output of two alternators from the dual system. At the bare minimum, the pulley difference is an indicator that an engineer saw a need to slow it down slightly (3%). Your alternator repair shop should have a test stand to verify the outputs and be able to give you some additional insight.
Amps are like torque in the electrical system, if they aren't available where you need them, they aren't of much use to you.
