140A alternators kit for rbs

Recommended Posts

Hi all I'm doing a production run of alternator mounting kits to fit 140a alternators to RB engines

The kit will have mounting brackets and hardware and new pulley

The alternators I'm using also plug straight into the original wiring.

The alternators can be supplied or you can get them yourself from oex $190

Holden $250 or Bosch for 250-300

Want to get a idea how meny people would be interested as all up

Alternator with kit will be under 500.

But the more interest I get the more I make the cheaper I case offer them to everyone.

Thanks

I will have photos up once it's all finalised,with all info required. Just didn't feel like making 100 plus kits and have no interest.

Alternator is from ls1 so you can even get one from the wreckers for $50. Have my prototype running on my car.just finishing up a better final design

Interested! That being said, what is the main advantage and disadvantage? I assume this is a higher current than the standard alternator (90, 120?), and that you can power electrics / charge the battery better at slight expense of engine power?

Yeah standard alts are 80A and when running for example walbro 460 (can do 30A per pump) and electric power steering (Astra pump can do 80A) you won't have any power left for engine/lights etc

We should've moved to >12V decades ago. Only now are there cars appearing with 48V.

Bad enough with direct injection fuel rails that can shoot fluid through skin like a bullet

Interested.  I'd also be interested if you have any options with higher output (150+)
