There is also one on ebay from time to time. You could spend a few hundred instead of 1K.

Doesnt the CT supercharger kit come with a different alternator?
Perhaps you can get a hold of the "original" alternator from someone whose installed the kit?

Yeah, I don't think it needs replacement yet..Everything seems to be working fine from an electrical/gauge standpoint. I'm pretty good mechanically and I have the shop manuals to do the job...Wrenchhead lists the same part for about $300....As far as my local dealer (Leith), they are excellent and I have had all my major service done there...If I do end up needed an alternator, I may just do this one myself...Thanks for the replies.

I ask this because I don't see it being replaced on a schedule the way a timing belt or a water pump is...
