    Default Alternator questions

    Well my alternator finally gave in last week and I have a couple of questions.

    What size is my alternator, the car is a '55'plate prelift veccy, 1.9cdti 8v sri....?? basic electrics, no electic rear windows or computers

    Whats size alternator would this have....

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-VECTR...item20af6e982a

    Ideally i would like to fit a 130amp alt, or the most powerful which i think this is. Which engine is the same fiat engines and do they use the same alternators?

    Also do these vectras have a 12volt regulator, because ideally i need my charge system as powerful as possible to run my ICE,

    Thanks

    Default

    The 140amp as fitted to the 3.0CDTI, would this be a different fit to the 1.9CDTIs?

    Also did they change anything on the engine block when they facelifted because I have a prefacelift

    If I stick with a 100amp alternator, will one off a prefacelift fit?
