Alternator upgrade

Hey everyone. I have a 98 mustang gt. I would like to upgrade my alternator from a 130 amp to a 150 amp. Will it hurt anything???

No but not sure why you need to do that. If you are running some massive *** stereo then 150 won't even be enough but for almost everything else the stock 3G 130 amp is more than fine.

2000 Mustang GT Steeda build #48. Bolt ons, suspension, Novi 2000.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

True, if your nominal is high enough to draw some serious amperage then an extra 20 amps may not do the trick. Also if you start getting up there in amperage your definitely going to want to make sure the rest of your charging system is up to par.

Let's start by finding out why your wanting to do this?
