Rewinds are junk! I'm sorry, but there is no way anyone is gonna make 200 amps reliably in a stock housing! More power = more space! Besides that, there is no way anyone is going to make a 200amp alternator for $169! It isn't possible. I have worked in this business for years and years and have seen it all. Even if you were able to fit it all in there, you wouldn't have adequete cooling - the manufacturer didn't design them to be 200amps. If they did, they would be 200A from the factory!

If you guys are looking for a true HO alternator that will not have reliability problems check these out:

Oh, and those 170A and 200A alternators on Ebay are junk too! I emailed the guy over and over and he swore they made the power he rated them at. However, he would not offer a money back gaurentee if they did not, and he would not supply me with some kind of documentation that they were even tested to make that much power. I ordered one from one of those companies a long time ago. It was supposed to be a 200A, took it to my friends shop who can actually benchmark them at all different RPM's while out of the car, and it made 62A peak!!!

Please everyone, take it from me as a professional in the field, DO NOT BUY REWINDS or anything claiming to make more than 150A for less than about $500!

thats not true...we make them every day.....with true HO parts. and on our bench test, they are putting out just about 200 amps...for ex. if it is a 200amp alt. it will test at about 160..for the fact that any alt. once it gets hot efficiency drops. and also you have loss in the form of heat. everything is simple math, if the original unit is rated at 130amp max (v6) at idle will give about 80 amps. at max RPM will give under 130 amps, once the unit gets hot the amps will drop even more..hence a 200 amp max alt. will give about 160-170 amps when it is hot, due to higher temps than a 130 amp. alt. in any event, the rating of 200 compared with 130, is a gain of 70 amps...in a real setuation the 130 amp alt. will give about 115, add a gain of under 70 amps will be a max of about 160-170..thus being a HO alt...

O.K. I was lying. I am telling you dude, 169 is the price quoted and I called yesterday to get the specs on charging ie. voltage amperage yada yada. Guaranteed 14V @ 200 Amp at 1500RPM with a stock pulley. Guaranteed with a 1 year warranty. Also, these are new housings. This particular alternator is. With my underdrive, it will push 200AMPS around around 2300 unless I buy a smaller pulley which he sells as well for $8. If you should need to call, it DB electrical in Gray Tn. 423-477-2242

Didn't look like that to me. I was simply trying to help out fellow cougar owners. That is the best price I have found and I know them to reputable retailers. I have had them custom make a couple things for me and they come through in great style.

Ok, and I'm just trying to help fellow Cougar owners out too. YOU ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR IN LIFE!! I'm sorry, but to build an alternator that is significantly higher output than stock, in a stock housing will just not work! The damn thing will overheat before you know it and you'll be buying another, and another, and another. Especially for $169!! These alternators are not just a plain old alternators like you'd have in an old Chevy or Ford. The voltage is internally regulated and controlled by the PCM. Just a new regulator alone (which is needed for more amps) is going to be a ton of money.

Not to mention - the the alternators had cooling problems *stock*. Now you try to add even more they won't take it.

When you buy a rewind it's simply a kit that someone in the field installs. When you buy one from a manufacturer they have actually engineered the entire alternator to be reliable, and make the power it says. They spend months, maybe years in R&D to manufacture a good quality alternator. So, if anyone is looking for a GOOD alternator that is going to last:

Sales Line (866) 446 8878 ext. 106

Believe who you want, but I've been installing car stereo professionally for about 9 years now. I've used just about every kind of alternator there is, these are GOOD alternators!
