These are made by a number of companies and come in various outputs. You need to look at the tag on the alternator and see whose product it was and then the output can be checked. There is some leeway on what can be put back into one. Upgrading is often a goal to increase the output. Hope that helps. Please get back to me if you need more later as all follow ups are included in our fee. No time limits.
