SVE 130 Amp Alternator Upgrade Kit
Increase charging power in your 1979-1985 Mustang with this black SVE 130 amp alternator upgrade kit! 1979-1985 Mustang stock alternators suffer from small wiring and low amperage output. The power wire plug is prone to melt and even cause an underhood fire. Add under drive pulleys while running your accessories and you'll likely see the lights dim and the battery gauge drop. Throw an electric cooling fan into the mix and the stock alternator simply can't keep up. This SVE alternator upgrade increases amperage output from 75 to 130 to power all of your accessories!
Our 130 amp SVE alternator is 100% brand new, no core charge, and carries a lifetime warranty. This alternator is from the internally regulated 3G series, includes the correct pulley (installed), and produces 75-100 amps at idle when used with the stock crank pulley and the included alternator pulley. The idle output of the SVE alternator meets or exceeds the peak output of the stock alternator! SVE's alternator is rated at 130 amps continuous output, but is capable of producing 160+ amps at peak. A dyno sheet, specific to every alternator, is included with every alternator to verify these stats.
4 Gauge 3G Power Wire Kit
This kit includes a complete upgrade to the main power feed wire from the alternator to the vehicle. The OEM wire from the alternator to the vehicle was not designed to carry the added load of higher amperage alternators. Using this large (#4 Gauge) wire kit will add the safe carrying capacity needed for lengths up to 10 feet. When using our high output alternators you must upgrade this cable to retain warranty coverage. It also includes noise suppression for aftermarket radios.
1G to 3G Upgrade Kit
This kit includes a 1G to 3G upgrade for the installation of a Ford 3G alternator on any vehicle where the stock alternator was EXTERNALLY regulated. We incorporate a new replacement external regulator box (as shown) to capture the proper circuit and retain the stock wiring harness along with our own 3-wire (3G Series) regulator plug. This kit allows the customer to retain the OEM warning lights and shunt type ammeter. Installation requires replacing the stock external regulator with the one provided, installing the alternator and our 3-wire plug, then make one crimp connection from the original wires at the alternator.
-The alternator housing is slightly larger than your factory unit. Minor bracket clearance/modification will be necessary.
-Output will decrease when used with underdrive pulleys by up to 30%.
-Direct reading ammeter should not be used or should be bridged due to the significant increase in measured amperage with upgrade alternators.
