  • 3G Series Alternator
  • 100% New Replacement
  • Includes Manufacturer Lifetime Warranty
  • Triples Charging Capacity
  • 80 Amps at Idle - 160 Amps at Maximum
  • Fits 1987 to 1993 Mustangs
100% New. This 130 Amp Mustang Alternator is 100% Brand New, not re-manufactured like other companies sell and is tested at the time of assembly. It comes complete with internal voltage regulator and pulley. Designed for highly (electrically) modified cars - this alternator will triple the charging capacity at all RPM Ranges with only minor modifications.

More Power. The PA Performance Alternator produces 80 amps at idle (2000 alternator shaft RPM), and 160 amps at maximum (6000 alternator shaft RPM). It is required to upgrade the main power wire because this alternator has a higher output than stock. (See the drop down menu option above.)

Peace of Mind. Why waste your time and money rebuilding your alternator again and again when it will only fail, replace it with a brand new high performance altenator that includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty directly from PA Performance for peace of mind.

Fitment. The PA Performance Alternator weighs in at 15.4 lbs and is nearly a direct replacement with only minor mounting bracket modifications required to be installed in a 1987 to 1993 Ford Mustang. The stock belt can be used on original equipment vehicles.

Fitment: 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 Details

Stock Alternator vs 130 Amp. I feel that 130 Amp is a little low. Will this handle if i have my lights on,Wipers and radio at idle without having the voltage meter drop or have major drain in my battery? With my stock one im having that problem and im unsure of which one to get that would stop that prob.


  • Your stock alternator should have been a 75Amps, with that said a 130 Amp at idle will put out 80 Amps. It will carry the load, but it can drop your voltage meter some depending on what electronics you have in your car. With that said I would suggest getting the 200 Amp, it idles at 100 Amp which your voltage meter should not drop and you should no have any major drain on the battery. I do highly suggest getting the PA Performance Wire Kit also to complete the install.

Will this work with my 4 cylinder? Are the mounting brackets in my 2.3L I4 mustang (1991) the same as the 5.0? Or is there anything else preventing it from working?


  • Hi, This PA Performance Alternator - 130 Amp will only work with 87-93 5.0 Mustangs, The bracket on a 2.3L are very different than on a 5.0.

    Everything they said about the alternator was true. Once u cut the pulley bracket it slides right in. Def buy the upgraded wires for it. It's real nice high quality stuff. Worth every penny

    Great amp increase over stock. only flaw slightly too large

    As always great deliver speed from AM. package arrived in 3 days from laptop to front door. Only flaw; new alt was slightly larger than stock alternator bracket (1990 lx mustang). GREAT PLUS included precise instructions including a page worth of tips for those who must modify braket to accommodate size of new 130 amp alt (no modification required for 95 amp alternator, I believe) SIDENOTE:the process of modifying alt bracket for new amp w/ DREMEL or rotary tool = 10min - w/o totary tool (aka hacksaw) 2+ hours although the metal itself is rather soft. After fitting with the MANDATORY alt power cable upgrade kit available thru PA PERFORMANCE, battery charging and power recycling cycle are operating nearly double stock amp outage. Great product as expected from PA PERFORMANCE, tis the reason I will continue to refer buddies to their products (starters, solenoids and, alts. PS thanks for included sticker *_*). thanks AM keep up this great site for mustang parts

    All the difference in the world

    Had recently installed an electric fan and electric water pump which at an idle my stock 65amp alternator just couldn't keep up. After this 130 amp alternator was installed " very easily I might add" no problems what so ever!! It even gives me confidence that I'll have more than enough for an after market stereo in the future. A must have item !!

    Back in the Game!!!!

    After dragging around the stock alternator with underdrive pulleys on the motor for years and watching the meter drop and lights dim down at idle with everything on. Put this bad boy in and is running like a champ. Now I need the throw more of a load on it. What's next, dual electric cooling fans? It can handle it!!!

    A great upgrade

    The PA Performance 130 Amp alternator is a great way to boost the electrical system on a 20+ year old Fox body. Be sure to get the Power Wire too, to protect the wiring of the car.

    The installation was a bit challenging because of the minor machining work to the alternator bracket, but all in all and easy installation.

    Good fit works great no hesitation only exception is that the bracket needed to be cut for the bolts to fit other then that fully satisfied.

    a mustang for all fox bodies

    this is a must! reguardless of what you have done, this is an absolute must for a fox body car. the OEM charging system is small on these cars to begin with, and this is the way to keep the juice up with you car. when your in the rain with the wipers on high and the headlights and fog lights on, with the a.c./defroster cranking with the radio on and come to a stop light and feel your car missing and the dash lights practically turn off!! yea here is the answer to the under amped stock alternator. install isnt the hardest, anyone who is handy could accomplish it in about 2-3 hours, for those who arent any auto repair shop is capable of doing the job, and if there not, find a new mechanic. -V.C.

    This alternator is great for people that need that extra umph for the charging system!!

    This product was very well priced first of all for what it does. It was really easy to assemble to the vehicle. Just a little minor adjustments to make it fit. Nothing a Dremel couldnt take care of. I would advise getting the power wire upgrade kit also. It was an easy install also and perfect length for those foxbody owners out there. I would advise this upgrade to everyone. More power is allways better!!
