Mechman S Series Alternators

The S series family of alternators offers large case alternator performance in a compact package. Highly efficient, these 6 phase alternators use less horsepower per Kilowatt than conventional 3 phase alternators. 12 press fit diodes, twin rectifier plates, and highly efficient twin internal cooling fans make them durable in any application. Smaller, lighter rotors and reduced rotating resistance make them an excellent choice for high RPM or racing applications. Like their big brothers in the Elite series, the S series have hairpin stators and high pole count rotors that create much less Electromagnetic noise than conventional 3 phase alternators.

Why did you choose this?
Sonic Electronix Store
After internet research, I felt this would be on of the best built alternators available in the market place. It does appear that they take great pride in their product and this made me feel confident to order one.

If you guys don't have a specific alternator for My car (2005 Pontiac Vibe) does Mechman then build on that work for my car? Or sense it is universal will it work with any vehicle?

Best Answer: Hello Ryan,

-If you guys don't have a specific alternator for My car (2005 Pontiac Vibe) does Mechman then build on that work for my car?

The answer is Not a 'No', but you will have to check with them. Yes, they have the ability to do so, and often do work of the sort, but they are adamant about customers speaking to a tech for such builds.

-Or sense it is universal will it work with any vehicle?

"Work", yes it is designed to work with any vehicle. However, the installation often (read: almost always) requires custom fabrication of mounts, bolt locations, etc...
