There is nothing worse than having a subpar charging system on your 1994-95 Mustang. This can cause many different issues including idle problems, dimming lights, or even a dead battery. This is an awesome upgrade for any 94-95 5.0 Mustang and install time should roughly take you about an hour from start to finish.

Let's head over to our 1995 Cobra we have in the shop today to show you how simple the alternator is to remove & install!
