Where to get an alternator?

I originally had a PA Performance alternator that crapped out on me, but I'm not the original buyer so no replacement from them. I needed a quick replacement so I got a remanufactured one from advance auto. The battery light started coming on occasionally after about a month then it came on more and more. So I replaced it under warranty Tuesday. Just now on the way home the battery light stayed lit so I am going to get another replacement again until I can get a good one shipped out here. So I'm looking for suggestions on what alternator to get and where to get it. Just a little info, I have an aftermarket head unit, mach 1000 system, 20 amp boost a pump, and a 2.1 kenne bell at 14 psi revving up to 6500

Had to pick up an Ultima Altenator from orielys. 225 after the core. Works well. 1000watt amp powering a 12" sub and aftermarket head unit.

If they keep frying on you are you sure there isn't a short in the system somewhere?

^^^^. There's a reason they keep going out. Check your wiring, grounds, fuses, and relays


04 GT: CAI, 3.73, Longtubes, Full exhaust, Comp Cams 270's, Short throw, Pullies, BBK 73mm TB, MSD coils, 47lb injectors, MPT tuned, Steeda lowering springs, Front strut bar, MM caster camber plates and the list goes on.

I just assumed it was crappy replacements. I'll start checking it out

I would, alternators aren't cheap, it would suck if it was one wire that was just shorted

Could a really tight belt cause them to keep failing? The belt is so tight that I have to push it on the supercharger pulley a rib at a time. Pushing on it doesn't flex it at all. I know it needs to be swapped out, I just ordered the next size up for it
