Either you didn't correctly hook up the voltage regulator or the regulator failed. It's allowing the alternator to overcharge the battery. If you don't fix it, you destroy the new battery as well.
Next check all of your fuses and relays. You may have had a spike that blew out one/more of these. Also, voltage spikes will do damage to gauges and computers as well. Hopefully yours are OK. Good luck.
