As long as the voltage is adequate then you could pump a million amps into the car and the car will only take what it needs.
It's kind of like your wall outlet is 110volts a/c but has the capability of giving you 15-20 amps of current. Plugging in a desk lamp will only take 100 watts or 1 amp of what's available to make it work.
Same with your 220amp alternator.
Hope that explains it a bit. 馃槈馃憤
