stock alt output?
 
What amp is the stock alternator? Having a hard time finding out.

I saw 150amp somewhere but that cant be right.

I looked it up at work, I think it was something crazy like that. Might have even been 155 or 165.

130 amps per the ones CFM sells HERE. I know you can get a high output ones at like 200 amps or something like that though.

sleepyboy 02-13-2013 07:24 PM

Wait I see you have a 2010. I imagine it's around the same amps though.

sleepyboy 02-13-2013 07:25 PM

Ok according to Rockauto the stock one is 110-120 amps and the other brands are 150 amps.

Thank you. Im getting an HO alternator was just wondering what the stocker was cause it sucks on just 1200 rms...

Thinking im going to go with the DC 270 amp.

Nice! From Rockauto it looks like any other alternator puts out more the stock one [scratch] [dunno] [werd]

I was looking into this a few weeks ago also. When I browsed the web places said the oem one is 110-120. But I talked to singer alts and He checked his sources and he says our stock alt on the 2010 focus is a 150amp alt! I was going to order a HO also but he didn't have a case that would fit our model.

do you have any car audio batteries or just the stock one?
I have two amps, about 1400rms total and with only one shuirken bt-20 I had very little voltage drop. I just recieved a bt45 also that im going to add in and I expect almost no voltage drop.
