Can someone tell me what the amp rating is on the 2006 alternator? I can't seem to find it. I think I read that it was 1300 watts but I want the amp rating. Thanks.

All I can find in my manual is 1.2 KW at 5000 rpm. Now I sould be able to convert that to amps but I am suffering from CRS.

volts times amps equals watts ...

or amps = watts/volts

amps = 1300/12

amps = 108.33

... more or less

Wingwing, That's what I thought ( honestly ). A friend of mine said the alternator looked too small to be 108 amps. Thanks for the reply. Joey Downs, 1.2 KW sounds about right, 1200 watts?
