No such critter that I know of, but I'll move this to the Car Audio and Electronics section and someone there might be able to help you. That's not really a question for Tech chat. Tech chat, if you read the description above, is for mechanical problems, TSB's, or recalls. Look at it this way, if we called it "Focus Repair Chat" then mods like me wouldn't have much to do except chat.

Sorry why not think, i thought about puttin this in the car audo section but i wondered if that was just for audio and lights and such. Cpl, there really isnt to many shops out here by my that will do that. If they do they arent close either.

Man if you find it, hit me up. All i can find is reman'd ones. I'm sure reman'd ones are cool but i have the worst luck outta anyone and i'd be the one to get the faulty one. I'm more into a new one...if only i could find one. Google didnt seem to want to help me too much on this one..

That link is for a Zetec alternator. PowerMaster makes a 150 amp for the Zetec too. However, I have yet to find a high output one for the Duratec, which is what the OP has.

If you're that worried about over drawing your electrical system, then do a big 3 upgrade with at least 4 gauge wire, and a deep cycle battery like an Optima Yellow Top.

Pretty much all you can do is find a rebuilt one or rebuild yours. btw, it's Duratec and Zetec, no "h" at the end. You'll get flamed if you keep spelling it that way.

Battery and big 3 is your only real option, though.
