Building a 120amp stock Kicker alt.

FYI -

Found a place in Schenectady, NY called Axcel and they build alts, starters and CV axles. They are rebuilding my stock 55amp alt to 120amps. Dropping it off on Friday, and will be done next week. I'll keep all posted, and verify the bench test. If all is good, I'll pass the info on and they do ship.

He said between $120 and $150. I'll know for sure when I pay for it. LOL!

Picked up the alt today. It benched tested at 85amps. 30 amps is a fairly nice increase from a stock fitting alt.

I'll be getting another one next week. Here's the deal, it will be using a hi-amp Honda alt stator swapped into the Kicker housing. This should bring it up to 110-120ish in amp, as I'm told. So it will still be a direct fit, which is what I think everybody is interested in.

As of today, if 85amps fits your bill, you can order it and it will ship in a couple days. For those that want to contact them to express interest in the 120amp, or if an 85 amp stock rebuild fits your purpose, heres the info:

So what was the final bill on the 85 amp? I'm guessing the 100+ will be more?

Thanx,
Brad.

My pricing is my pricing.

Give a call, the 120amp will be less than $150, cheaper for the 85amp.
