Just out of curiosity, how many of you with alternator problems are driving portable concerts? I've owned I don't know how many cars, and I've only ever had one alternator go bad, and that was because I was overseas and the wife let the battery go damn near dry.
i havent had any alt problems... *knock on wood* and ive got a "mobile concert" i have the stock 124 amp alternator, and yes sometimes i can watch the voltage spikes as the subs hit,... i think its ALMOST time for a new one
jr's3800, Two more questions. Since my 92 SE came with a stock 105 amp, upgrading to a 140 or a 160 amp would be to my advantage correct? Also do you know if a rear spoiler on a 95 Bonnie will fit on my 92? Thanks.
So at KOI autoparts we got a brand spanking new (i guess SSEi) alternator... it a big sucka. WE had to do some creative manuvering to get it to fit. AND its SHIIIIINNNNNYYYYY So i guess my car is like 1/100 SSEi now huh? Hey stop laughing.... i mean it! Its the simple (and POWERFUL) pleasures in life
wilwren, Thanks for replying. I think I have found a spoiler for my car. Going to check it out tomorrow. Only problem is it doesn't have the mounting hardware. MOS95 says his are 10mm bolts but I don't know what lenght they are. I will check for the black abs caps also.
FYI, the 93 service manual says that the alternator is a type CS-130, with a 105 amp output. No difference between any of the trim lines except for the mounting arrangement on the supercharged engine. No 140 amp alternator listed.
