No core charge, no shipping your used up one to them or any of that. Just a killer alternator at a good price that shows 13.5 volts charging at idle speed with the headlights and AC on.

It only puts out the 160 amps if the electrical system has a use or need for it.

xbmwguy Frank gets credit for finding these on ebay.
I agree with JFairman. I did the 160 amp and what a difference in the voltage. At idle I am at 13.6 , where with the stock alternator I was seeing about 13 volts at idle
