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...Originally posted by: 02gsxr600
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!
