Mopar Alternator Comparison: Stock vs Powermaster Original Look vs Powermaster 220amp Upgraded Alternator

When it comes to the charging system of your classic car, you have a few options. The first is to just hope and pray that the 50-year old alternator that’s on the engine continues to work even though it has spun 10s of millions of times in its life and is likely about to spit the bit.

That’s not the best idea in our opinion. Another option would be to call Powermaster and get one of their Original Look alternators which ha the best of both worlds. For starters it looks just like the OE piece and produces the kind of juice you need to keep your car happy and functioning perfectly. for years to come.

The third option is really for those who have upgraded their cars with modern touches, more horsepower, and accessories that will put some load on the electrical system. That’s an upgraded 220 amp alternator from Powermaster. How do you know what works or what’s best for your application? This story is awesome because we see all three things we just discussed put to work.

You don’t have to have a Mopar to get information out of this. In fact, anyone with a vehicle that uses a charging system can benefit from this knowledge. Check it out!

    A fourth option is to get a new version of a later alternator design – I’m using a Bosch alternator from an early ’90s Mopar truck on my slant six. How does this compare?

    All nice but if you’re using 40/50 or 60 year old wiring that was made for stock type amp input you might end-up with an insurance claim and looking for an other toy.

    Best thing you can do is to add up all your electrical demands and purchase the appropriately rated alternator to meet those demands, and then contact Mark at MadElectrical.com. Mark knows his stuff and as Raymond said above your charging system is only as good as your wiring, this is where Mark and his products come in. He knows GM, Chrysler and Ford, give him a call, sometimes he can be hard to reach but that is because he knows what he is talking about and people are always calling him. I can also highly recommend Powermaster alternators, have used their products before with good results
