100% New. This Powermaster 200 Amp Mustang Alternator is 100% brand new, not re-manufactured like other companies sell and is fully tested at the time of assembly. It comes complete with internal voltage regulator and 6 groove serpentine pulley. A 200 Amp alternator will increase the charging capacity of your Mustang at all RPM Ranges.

More Power. The Powermaster Alternator produces 100 amps at idle (2000 alternator shaft RPM), and 200 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.

Bright Chrome Finish. This Powermaster Alternator not only improves your Pony's power, but it also improves your Mustang's under hood appearance with its bright triple plated chrome finish.

Peace of Mind. Why waste your time and money rebuilding your old alternator again and again when it will only fail, replace it with a brand new high performance alternator from Powermaster for peace of mind.

Application. The Powermaster 3G Series Alternator is a direct fit replacement with no mounting bracket modifications required to be installed in 1996 to 1998 GT Mustangs. The stock belt can be used on original equipment vehicles.

I just had the Steeda under drive pulleys installed after having this 200 amp Powermaster alternator in for a couple months and after udp's install, at idle in drive (automatic) or any accesories (lights) voltage/idle is so low that the car nearly dies and light are way dim (useless). Is this combination not meant to work together? I was in the process of installing a stereo but that's not happening until this is resolved. I was under the impression that these were upgrades not downgrades. Great brand names. What am I not understanding here? and yes I upgraded the wire. Thanks for any help. Frustrated

  • An under drive pulley kit is really meant to work with your factory alternator. I would recommend going back to the pulley that was included with the alternator. If this does not work I would recommend consulting with a shop, at that point it sounds like something may not be set up correctly.

what size wire do i need for the upgrde ?

  • The Powermaster 3G Series Alternator is a direct fit replacement with no mounting bracket modifications or other modifications required to be installed in 1996 to 1998 GT. The stock wire will do fine, however, we would recommend upgrading to the PA Performance wire (link below) with this alternator.

    Review from Powermaster Alternator - 200 Amp Black (96-98 GT)

    Not cheap but well worth it.

    Had problems with ad on's , new halogens headlights, stereo radio and speakers , MSD ignition system. Was a power drain. Also purchased the heavy duty wiring system for connection Cars running at 18 volts. So far so good.

    Good Alternator

    The alternator arrived in 2 days. I have been trying to replace components under the hood with chrome and this alternator's chrome was pretty, shiny and easy to install! It appears to be working beautifully as I have had no problems with it yet.

    Alternator Is A Gem

    I love the look my ride has with is newest addition. The chrome makes it pop. The alternator was easy to install and worked perfectly with the addition of the upgrade cable kit available from AM.
