    I may need to replace the alternator in my 95 Talon and I was wondering what’s my options were as far as getting an alternator I don’t want to have issues aside from a defect if the odds occur. Should I just grab whatever the parts store has as a replacement? I want to do this right if there is a wrong way.

    As long as it's name brand and vehicle specific, then you should be good to get it. They should come with small warranties or return policies in case of factory defects too.

    Any upgrades to a 90 amp that is direct bolt on? I’ve heard of this but not sure. I know about the Saturn alt with relocation but wondering if there is other ways to get a 90 amp or if I need to settle for 75

    I read that a 96 galant 2.4 auto alternator is a direct fit at 90 amps. I can't verify this

    Yes. The 90 amp altenators are from the Galant's. I believe you would get a 96-98 Galant 2.4L with an A/T alternators will put out 90amps. Do a Google search & double check.

    Best I could find was someone with UK part numbers.

    Try doing a different search like "2G DSM Galant Alternator" for info from others. If you want OEM only contact one of DSMTuners supporting vendors. You can get a remanufactured one from RockAuto besides the local neighborhood part stores.

    The NT Spyder alternator is 90 amps and the same as the galant. I believe basically anything with the 4G64 will have a 90 amp alternator that will work on a 2G turbo

    Whatever you do don't get a warranteed for life reman at an auto store. You will be returning it constantly - what good is lifetime warranty when you're constantly returning it? Beware of auto stores, most sell junk alts - some even sell remans as "new". And only get a new name brand one (eg. Bosch, Denso, etc). The 2.4L AT is 90 amp but not sure if it's a direct bolt on. The best place to get an alt IMHO is an auto starter/alt repair shop. They sell the best quality ones of both new and ones they rebuilt themselves (or they'll fix yours). I even had them rewire my 75A into a 90A.

    We just covered this subject a few weeks ago if you search you should be able to find the conversation.

    Update for everyone, I got the 96 Galant 90 amp alternator and the install went great! It’s a brand new Duralast not reman. Hoping it lasts me a while, and happy to have my car running smooth again. Thank you everyone for your help!

    For 1gs auto and manual have different alternators.
    Dont know for sure bout 2gs, but I thought I'd throw that out there if any 1g guys are watching.
