Mine was replaced once before I bought the car, and now this one is about to go. DP 160 amp is on its way by Friday!

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.

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.
