weird volt meter readings

I was running the Jeep today and noticed my volt meter jumping around (more so than normal) . Sometimes when I gave it more pedal, it would peg out past 16 volts and when I left off, back to 13-14. It normally just runs between 13-15 volts. Is that the alternator going bad or is it the gauge ground? I did the TR upgrade and it's the 258, I didn't know if running that type of coil might have something to do with it or not. When I pulled into the driveway it was running the normal 14-15 volts and held there at idle. So i just called it a night and was hoping to resort to you guys.

thanks,

Jud
