PA Performance 99-04 Mustang GT 170 Amp High Output Alternator
170 Amp Ford Alternator 6G Family (2264HO)

Common on Ford SOHC and some 3V Applications
This unit is a direct replacement with NO modifications
90+ amps at idle (2000 alternator shaft rpm)
170+ amps maximum (6000 alternator shaft rpm)
The stock belt can be used on original equipment vehicles
Actual Alternator Weight is 14.2 lbs
All units are 100% NEW and come complete with internal voltage regulator and pulley
To calculate the alternator shaft speed, which should be no more than 16,000 RPM do the following:
Alternator pulley size (ie 2.5")
Crankshaft Pulley Size (ie 5")
Ratio is 2:1 (5 / 2.5 = 2)
Max engine Speed = 5800 RPM
Multiply Max RPM x Ratio (5800 x 2) = 11,600 shaft RPM Max
Idle RPM = 1000
Multiply Idle RPM x Ratio (1000 x 2) = 2000 shaft RPM @ Idle
An alternator needs 1800-2000 at idle to make power and will make maximum output at 6000 rpm, and will start to fail at 16,000 RPM.
