    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.

    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 alternator that includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty directly from PA Performance for peace of mind.

    Bright Polished Finish. This PA Performance Alternator is completed in a durable bright polished finish for great show car looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Application. 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.

        Hi my name is Roger S. I have a 1992 Mustang but not sure what AMPS my stock alternator puts out. I have replaced my clutch fan with a dual electric fan. when the fan kicks in it brings the volts down and more when I turn on the AC. What can I do here I need help please. Thank you

        • The OEM alternator would be a 75 amp unit, making the PA Performance Alternator with its 130 amp output a very significant upgrade for charging system performance. In addition, the alternator output is significantly higher than OEM at idle, where the alternators will output the lowest. We recommend this alternator for any Mustang with increased electrical loads produced by electric fans and aftermarket stereos.

        What prevents this alternator from fitting on my 86 Capri? Mods or connector?

        • We unfortunately do not carry any parts for the 86 Capri, however, this has the capability of being used with any aftermarket connector with it as well, but we cannot guarantee fitment for this.

            Works and looks great!

            Wanted to change out my stock alternator for one with more power. I have noticed a huge difference since more flickering lights! It is also looks great under the hood along with my other upgrades.

            Great product

            Exactly as expected, took a little working to fit but not too much. Even someone with limited vehicle knowledge could figure this out, does not take an expert. Bracket modification was the most difficult part, and if you have the correct tools even that would be a breeze. Satisfied customer!

            PA Performance 130 AMP Alternator

            At first glance this is so much better visually than the original alternator on my fox body. I love that I no longer see a cooling fan on the outside but not as much as I love seeing how much more output this alternator is producing! No more diming lights at idle and the car runs better with the constant voltage increase. Easily one of the "must do's" for the pre 3G Stangs. Went on easily with just the common small clearance work to the bracket (about 20 minutes with a small grinder and a Dremel to clean it up nicely). Certainly can be done quicker than that but I wanted a nice clean, finished end product. I used the pre terminated charge wire from PA since it looks so nice and with an engine bay full of powder coating, polish and chrome I didn't want anything less. The only thing that held me back from giving it 5 stars across the board was the polishing job. Don't get me wrong though, it is very highly polished, smooth and clean......mostly. The area around the lower mount was not done at all. I spent the better part of an hour and got it looking as nice as the rest. If you're running a stock air box or big open filter in the stock location this won't mean anything to you, bolt it on and go. If you're running a fenderwell intake system or custom anything you can see this unpolished area quite easily. Is it nitpicking? Yes. I understand that a company can't spend the extra time getting into all these nooks and crannies. Maybe it was just a missed area on the one I received? In closing, this is an absolutely awesome addition to your ride! I would recommend it to anybody that will stand around long enough to listen about it... ....any day, everyday ;)

            Great looking works great, small hiccup

            this alternator looks very good! Although it doesn't match my motor considering it's the only polished item. Looks are a 10, performance 10 but the one small hiccup I had was a smaller bolt hole on top and the hole on the bottom left of the alternator was dented so i did have to bang it out with a junk bolt, but I'm sure it was a shipping mistake. Overall great produce but should come with a new bolt for the upper in case someone else experiences the same thing, thanks AM for another awesome product!

            as advertised

            It only took a few hours to install this alternator in my 87 5.0 lx mustang. If anyone is finding that the old one doesn't cut it anymore, this is a good upgrade. After installing an aftermarket radio and other goodies, the original just wasn't putting out enough amps. No problem now.
