Alternator Swap Question?

I want to know if I can put a 2.0l focus alternator on a 2.3.
My alternator died and I have a 2003 focus 2.3.

Should work if they mount up the same way and the voltage output are identical.

You will definitely need to double check. There are a lot of factors that go into alternator fitment. Manual vs auto, PZEV vs non PZEV, and I thought the 2.0 and 2.3 were different. I thought one was 110 amp and the 2.3 was 120 amp...

Whether or not PCM controlled figures in big there too. They make identical looking alts at same amp that when bolted in place can make PCM go nuts. Regulator color code is a big deal there, color of regulator plastic and the small square plastic cover too. '00 Focus zetec use white reg w/black cover. It's a PWM alt.
