I don't know about other places but locally we have an alternator/generator repair shop. They can make adjustments of the voltage regulation to suit the vehicle/owner's preference. They will set the voltage to almost anything the customer wants, but after a certain point they don't guaranty their work, so it's on the customer's 'back' if it 'swarms' on them. Typically, raising voltage beyond some point will mean a reduction in the life of things, mainly light bulbs from my experience, but anything connected to that voltage source. I've also found that that can sometimes be more trouble than it's worth! It's up to you though, so...
(Once changed from a 6 volt positive ground to a 12 volt negative ground. Made lots of things possible that weren't before that change. Also found out that I had to do some 'reverse' wiring to get things to operate 'normally'. If I had to do that again I still would, but I'd do some more planning ahead of time. )
