The clutch pulley adds $40 or so... the 6-groove serp is at no additional cost.

I'm leaning towards free, but don't want to screw up my order. any words of wisdom out there?
You have a 6-rib clutch pulley on the stock alternator. It's there to prevent belt chirp during shifts on some cars. You don't have to have it; if you look at all of us who've 'upgraded' their alternators, very few are using the clutch.

I second that as one of the easiest repairs. My wife needed a new one when she was driving a 99 gt years ago. Her father would have done it but was recovering from a hernia operation at the time. With his direction she was able to do it. She must have done a good job since it never gave her problems again. She can do this but claims to be unable to change a tire or wiper blades.

Whoa, randomly checked out the forum and see one of my threads from forever ago resurrected!

Well I will tell you the cheapest place to get an alternator. eBay. I managed to pick one up for $50 on there and it had a 1 year warranty. Still hasn't crapped out. The price may vary though... I was lucky to find mine at that price.

Here is one for $104.87 shipped (there was a cheaper used one but would not recommend a used alternator unless it had the warranty like mine):

Default high amp?

I found a 240 amp alternator with a year warranty on ebay, but does it benefit me to have the extra amps? My mustang gt is all stock with the shaker 500. Only aftermarket stuff are the valve caps on my tires, and I don't think that warrants additional amps... does it hurt me to have the extra amps?

Not sure to be honest

Hey guys, first time poster. Last night, while I was driving the car wanted to practically shut off and my radio/lights/fogs shut completely off. Was able to get it home, and tried jumping it, and as soon as I let it run for a good 30 mins and shut the car off, it wouldn't turn back on. Gonna buy a new battery today-I know I should get a batt that gives 500-600 cold cranking power, but my local auto store has one that gives off 650, that'll be fine right? Keep in mind, I have a stock '06 convert GT. Thanks =]
