Product Description

SVE 130 Amp Alternator 1G to 3G Upgrade Kit
This SVE 130 amp alternator upgrade kit gives your 1986-1993 Foxbody Mustang more charging power for your accessories! 1986-1993 Mustang stock alternators suffer from small wiring and low output, and the power wire plug is prone to melt and even cause an underhood fire. Add under drive pulleys and running your accessories such as headlights, A/C or the heat and you'll likely see the lights dim and the battery gauge drop. Throw an electric cooling fan in to the mix and the stock alternator simply cant keep up. This kit gives your Fox Body Mustang the extra charging power it needs to keep your electronics running smoothly!

More Output Power
Our 130amp 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 installed alternator pulley. The idle output of the SVE alternator meets or exceeds the peak output of the stock alternator! The SVE 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.

1G to 3G Upgrade Kit
This kit is made specifically 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. All alternator upgrades require a large (#6 or #4 gauge) wire be run from the output of the alternator to the vehicle harness.

Power Wire Kit
This is a complete kit to upgrade the main power feed wire from the alternator to the vehicle on most Fords. Basically, the OEM wire from the alternator to the vehicle was not designed to carry the added load of higher amp alternators. If you use the stock wires again or not, is your choice, but using this large (#4 Gauge) wire kit will add the safe carrying capacity needed for lengths up to 10 feet.

Output will decrease when used with underdrive pulleys by up to 30%.

Our SVE Mustang 130A Alternator Kit includes a new OE type attaching bolt and nut, voltage regulator plug, and a stator plug.

**Being slightly larger then most other Ford units, minor bracket clearance/modification will be necessary.**

**This product comes with a limited lifetime warranty!**

  High Voltage
By on 6/23/2014
so overall this is a great alternator and cheaper then others on the market, if your buying this for you 85 mustang it can seem a little confusing, the instructions that come with it are for either a 1966 to 81 or 1986 to like a 1993 but one call to PA Performance got me straight. its pretty straight forward but the pictures and instructions and a little different then what the 85 alternator has on it, you make a slight clearance mod for the alternator to fit but you pretty much only splice one wire, swap out the voltage regulator with the supplied one and add the 4 gauge wire with 200 amp fuse to the B+ side of solenoid and you done. I checked everything with a volt meter as per instructions and it works great. my headlights and instruments cluster do seem a little bitter. also its recommended to add an aftermarket volt meter because the old one will not read the new higher voltage correctly, overall I highly recommend this upgrade, works great.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
