    Features & Details

    • Used to Upgrade from 1G to 3G Alternator
    • Retains Stock Wiring and OEM Warning Lights
    • Fits 1979 to 1985 Mustangs
    More Power. This PA Performance Alternator Upgrade Plug is needed to convert early Mustangs with a 1G Series alternator to a more powerful 3G 130 Amp alternator.

    Retains Stock Wiring And OEM Warning Lights. PA Performance incorporated a new replacement external regulator box to capture the proper circuit and retains the stock wiring harness along with their own 3-wire (3G Series) regulator plug. This kit allows you to retain the OEM warning lights and shunt type ammeter.

    Required Upgrade. All alternator power upgrades require a larger gauge (#4 or #6) wire to be run from the output of the alternator to the vehicles harness. Pa Performance recommends their 4 Gauge Premium Power Wire Kit.

    Application. This PA Performance 1G to 3G Alternator Upgrade Plug is designed for 1979 to 1985 Mustangs that are upgrading to a more powerful 3G Series 130 Amp alternator.

            Nice Product, a little pricey

            Great product if you want to upgrade from 1G to 3G alternator and keep the look of an external voltage regulator. The box provides exciter power for the 3G unit without making slices or wiring changes within your factory harness. Your factory in dash amp gauge will not still not function properly. However this unit really simplifies the 3G install. I am very pleased with my purchase.

            3G Alernator plug upgrade

            I give this 3 stars because it came with no instructions. Besides letting you keep your original wiring harness I am not sure what the function is of this box and why I should use it. I was told by a PA Performance tech it's so you won't burn up your gauges but was told by another it 's so you won't burn up the 3G alternator regulator and you should install a volt meter. I could not find any detailed instructions at PA Performance web site or anywhere else on the web. This product needs better support.
