    alternator question

    Cant find anyone who makes a high output alternator for my car yet. Quality Power Auto offered to upgrade the alternator for me for a reasonable price. Opinions and thoughts? Will the upgrade hold up and put out like a aftermarket high output alternator would?

    Re: alternator question

    Well being my car is so new I don't think anyone has had the time to produce anything for it yet. Also my cars alternator is controlled by the cars computer and doesn't have a normal or regular voltage regulator on it so its different/new technology. Im sure if I give it more time some options might open up, but for now I think its a waiting game.

    I was having trouble finding a good alternator for my 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer. All I could find was crappy ebay rebuilds until I talked to Singer. He is building me a 210 amp one right now.

    What does he take a case from a stock unit and build it up with high quality parts?

    Your going to have to ask him that question. All I can tell you is everyone that's bought a alternator from him are very happy with the quality and the lifetime warranty.

    i'm the singer rep here , some cases its just a stock alt case with an upgraded stator and internals ,in other cases its a whole different alt.you car has the esm system ,i believe ,which means the alt kicks on only when needed when not needed it runs at a lower voltage ,you can by pass it tho ,with a external reg, but it may make the check engine light come on.,but being its a new car you wont have to worry abut the light or smog for 6 years .but just plug the stock alt back in and your good to go when you need t smog.

    Re: alternator question

    So I might get a CEL which means I wouldn't pass inspection without swapping the old alternator back in. Thats a big pain in the rear but then again I may not get a light. You said in order to bypass it you have to run an external regulator, is this an easy process?
