    is this a suitable 200watt alternator?

    1989 Lincoln Town Car - "Anabelle" - Original block, .030 over with SpeedPro pistons, rods fitted with ARP hardware, FRPP +volume oil pump, GT-40 3bar heads, Crane 1.72 rockers, 89' Fox cam, 93' Cobra lower intake, Explorer upper and 65mm TB, 93' Lightning EGR spacer, K&N intake kit from a 4.0L Ranger, 19lb/hr injectors w/ 87 Mark VII ECM, cat/smog deletes, Big Brake conversion, 3.55 K-Code Trac-Lok/Disc brake rear axle, CVPI LCA's w/1" sway bar in rear, wagon front sway bar, BBK 2.5" off-road H-Pipe, Flowmaster super 40s, HPP wheels, 3G alternator w/ wiring kit, gear reduction starter conversion, Best 1/4 time: 16.0 @ 85mph.

    The tabs don't look to be in the right place for some reason. Maybe I'm imagining things but it seems to me our tabs are about 180 degrees opposite. That ones not like that. I'd also be scared to death to attempt running 200 amps through the stock 2g wiring harness. its only 2 10 ga wires. They melt with a stock 65 amp alt, just imagine pumping 200 through it. The 95 Mustang 130 amp unit swaps over pretty easily and I can tell you it'll be cheaper than that. Its also an off the shelf part at most places. Not quite as much juice, but there is much to be said about ease of replacement if it pops.

      89, you are confusing amps and watts still - see the electronics link in my sig for an electro-education.

      Small amplifiers dont need a new alternator to run them.

      And yes, running a high power alternator will require all new fused high power wiring direct to the battery, if you get one.
