$30 is the difference between the 130A and the 95A. Don't let the bracket modification bother you, it will take 5-10 minutes to do. At least this way if/when you decide to run an electric fan you don't have to upgrade again to a 130A...just food for thought....First5.0 said:i'm interested in this as well. I'm thinking about getting a 95 amp alternator from PA Performance cuz the stock one is going south. I understand that it is a direct replacement with no mounting bracket modification. Do you need a 'power wire' wit this one as well? If so, which one?
true. but with the addition of their 'power wire' its another $45.xsvstang said:

"· Long Kit – this is 109” from end to end including the fuse holder – and made for vehicles where the alternator and starter relay are on opposite sides of the engine compartmentzeus said:I've got the 95 amp alt. Only reason I didn't go with the 130 was because I had no cash at the time and didn't want to upgrade to the Power wire.
Mine bolted up fine, no modifications and PA is a great company to go through. It charged great with stock pulleys. I now have a u/d water pump and crank pulley. The lights dim just a bit at idle but I still see over 12 volts at the battery idling with accessories on.
Now I'm thinking about the Power wire because the stock wiring is 12 years old and I figure it can't hurt.
xsvstang - I saw PA has a short version of the Power wire kit for $29, do you know if I can use it on a Mustang or will I have to get the long version?
Sooo your running a 130 amp potential through two 8 gauge wires? Keep an extinguisher handy, when it bursts into flame, remember to shut down the engine, and then aim the dry powder AT the base of the flame. Continue to discharge the extinguisher until all flames are out. Hopefully you have a tleast 5lbs of chemical.jaf489361408 said:i bought a 130 amp alt out here in cali --for my fox body mustang-- i had to do no modifications to the power wire just cut a cable and put a lil female type connector on it so it would fit and i have had no problems with it- he also changed the pully for more charge and my car has no problems at all -- i have pullies and the amprige is way up there without that kit u were talkin about
You wouldn't happen to have any details on exactly what you got at Pep Boys would you? I'm a little electrically retarded so I need some help. What amp fuse did you run? All the stuff you need for $10?Coupester said:Actually, Kim, I also ran my 130amp alternator through stock wiring for 2 years before upgrading to a 4 gauge power wire and a fuse, which cost me about 10 bux from Pep Boys. .
Here is a thought - lets say you are working on your car and the tunes are on - or you go to dinner and leave the lights on for an hour or two - what do you think that 130 amp alternator does when you start the car.... I'd say about 150 amps is what. Instant fire - go grab Kim's extinguisher.Coupester said:Actually, Kim, I also ran my 130amp alternator through stock wiring for 2 years before upgrading to a 4 gauge power wire and a fuse, which cost me about 10 bux from Pep Boys. Honestly, if you don't increase your current draw past stock, there is no harm in running a 130amp alternator through the stock wiring.
