    Re: Looking for an alternator

    I have a CES alt. 270 amps for my car and the price they gave me was hard to pass up.

    Does the job.
    I want to clamp it but they sent me a video on their bench doing 293.

    I want to know why their alts are so cheap compared to others. If I clamp it this weekend and it actually does what it says then imma need some answers.

    This is a very good question. Maybe parts are more expensive..? Could be wrong but just a stab at it. More costly to build? Who knows. But...if he keeps impressing people from around the world, those other guys should be worried. Charge whatever they want, no set pricing regulation, because they can...maybe due to demand.

    Absolutely no reason a 270 amperage alt should cost 700 bucks.

    My car is kinda a pos when it comes to alt.
    Stupid VW's

    I didn't get a quote from anyone under $500 except excessive amperage who said they could do a 240 for $480 I think..?

    It has to be cost of parts. I'm thinking I can get two years out of this thing just because of what I assume is them using lower end parts. Which I am ok with just because I know how long I'll need this car for.
    If I went with singer, mechman, or DC I'd never expect it to fail.

    I like older cars better....easier to work on. I kinda rescued this car as it was in beat up shape wasn't taken care of.

    I got sorta lucky finding this one.
    Happy that I got it but I wish I had an SUV because I'd be so much louder. I also wouldn't need to have a 12. I could have my 18s back.

    Smaller SUV like an s10 blazer...will certainly get loud. Smaller cabin size than Tahoe or Suburban or Excursion. Older one because they're less expensive than newer ones.

    I used to have a navigator. The cabin gain on that thing was 10/10
    Best vehicle I've ever owned.
