R33 Alternator Options

Hey, Looking to replace the alternator in my '96 r33.

Ive removed the existing one and uncovered part numbers on it

NISSAN: 23100-70T14

MITSU: A2T37791C

Cant locate these part numbers anywhere online.

After lots of looking i found the bosch BXN1231 which it looks like people have used before? Is this a suitable option?

Ive been quoted $361.90 New from local dealer.

CONCERN: Its only 70amp the one thats shat itself was rated at 80amp will this make a great deal of difference?

Anyone recomend any other more suitable alternatives that will bolt straight up :banana: hopefully with no need to change electrical plugs.

THANKS:)

Get it rebuilt, should cost half that.

I personally wouldnt use an alternator that couldnt supply as much current as the original, especially if the car has been modified with bigger stereo's and/or full of old/dirty connectors & grounds etc.

What do people think a typical rebuild would cost? the reason i was looking at new was from everything i had seen online i would be up for $250-300 for a rebuild so i figured i may as well go new.

Theres nothing much to them, a rebuilt one is almost 100% brand new anyway apart from the housing and thats usually repainted also.

So its cheaper, direct fit, almost 100% brand new, and has a higher/correct output rating (less power supply issues down the track)

A non standard one is more expensive, possibly not a direct fit, 100% brand new, lower/incorrect output rating (with possible problems in future)

Weigh the benefits and make your decision. I paid approx. $130 to get an RB30 alt recond about 4-5yrs ago
