    High output alternator for 2010 - 2013 models available

    Seeing if any members on here are interested in a better built alternator for our late model sx4s? Made in the US with high quality components and rated at 240 amps compared to the factory 75 and 80 amp. These ones are built like a tank. Let me know if anyone is interested and I'll post more info.

    240amps?....at 14 volts, this makes 3.4kw....or 4.5 hp.....the belt will not survive.....verify the numbers.....I cannot see where that much power would be required....but anyway, the voltage regulator would limit the output at a "normal" value.

    Having seen several alternator replacements on this forum ...most for mechanical reasons...I'd like to know that this one is "240A capable"(which I doubt and would probably never be asked to deliver) but has heavy duty permanently lubricated ball bearings.

    Depends on what your audio setup is. Audio tuners always beef up their alternators. No belt issues ever. Also running extra accessories. Our factory stock alternator barely get the job done. Also where these alternators are located almost side bottom passenger side, they take on allot of road debris and water. Stock alternators could be made more durable. So basically, that's what i have with this custom made one.

    Same original stock alternator housing. Mounts the exact same way. The difference is higher amperage 240, denser heavy duty windings core and better bearings, is all beefed up compared to stock. Translates into more durable longer lasting.
