I stopped by advanced auto parts and they have a beck/arnley 140 amp alt for my corsica. Model number 186-6144. It costs $140. Right now i have a 105 amp alt. Im only running 1100 rms right now and want to eventually do 1500 rms in a month or 2. Im on a cheap budget and it looks like this is a pretty good price right? So could i run 1300-1500 on this legitly and this be a good buy? and yes i know its not a huge 200 amp alt or anything, like i said im on budget. thx a lot

actually, i found this on ebay for 110 shipped. Would this fit my 3.1L v6 corsica and work decently.

I'd trust the advanced store more than buying one from ebay. The one from advance should do what it states and if it doesn't you can always take it back. Online would be a lot more hassle. The 140 amp alt should be enough to run 1500 rms on. Have you already upgraded the big 3?

Over the two listed i would go for the advanced one. Like said above its a lot easier to return if need b. I don't think your system will not have a problem as long as the big 3 is also done.

well P=EI
figure it out! haha just playing that might be wrong too lol but you figure watts by Amps x Volts so if you can maintain 14 volts thats 14x35 which is 490 so about 490 watts from that extra 35 amps, but of course theres many things that come into play that take away those 490 watts but thats just in general
