What's the difference between the 95amp alternator and the 130amp alternator?

hey guys, i was wondering whats the difference between the 95amp alternator and the 130 amp alternator. i know the 130 amp alt. will put out more amps than the 95 amp alt. but i dont understand why the 95 amp alt. is $214.10 dollars and the 130 amp alt. is only $36.55 dollars from ford, shouldn't the alt. with more amps be more exspensive?

i would bet that you are missing a 0 in the 130 amp alt price. i dont think you can get any alt from ford for $36.55

It is a more common part, it is used on late model V6's of all kinds all the way up to like 2003.

More in use, more being replaced so they get more of them in and out.

like I said before, it is a more common part used on WAY more (and newer) vehicles, therefor it is cheaper because it gets replaced on more vehicles, more often.

Not really a surprise that it is cheaper at all.

more common is always cheaper...it is less expensive to make a few million than a few thousand.. funny thing is people always choose factory replacement and some will still buy the 95 amp just cause that is what the car had.

Yeah, those 130 ampers are used on a ton of ford cars, everything with an e fan and I see them on E series vans too.
I'll give you a perfect example of why its valued less: Obama needs more money to fund his spending habit so he makes more, the more thats out there(the dollar in this case) the less its worth, Ford needed more 130 amp alts than 95 so there are more out there thus they are worth less

agree.

Nothing from ford is $36.


So get online or whereever and buy it, if that is actually the price (or a mistake) they should honor it and you'd be in luck.

No, different style of mounting.
