Do I still need to use the regulator if I'm putting a Ls in it? I understand it is used for a genarator but the alternators now have built in regulators.

Nope. Your old unit is still an alternator, but uses an external regulator. If you needed to use an old school alternator with internal regulator with like 76amps. You could be a pre-made delco clip with a diode made into it. Clip it in, long wire goes to 12 volt keyed on source and the other loops around to the out put terminal for voltage sensing.
