  • Common on Ford DOHC Applications in 2003 & 2004 only and 3.8L applications from 2001 - 2004
  • This unit is a direct replacement with NO modifications
  • 90 amps at idle @ 950 rpm
  • 170 amps maximum @ 3000 rpm
  • The stock belt can be used on original equipment vehicles
  • Actual Alternator Weight is 12.9 lbs
  • All units are 100% NEW and come complete with internal voltage regulator.


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.
