Alternator 3.8 vs. 3.8 Supercharged

Hey Guys and Gals,

I have a question, hopefully someone can answer for me easily.

I have a 91 Supercoupe. My alternator went today.

Will the alternator out of a regular 3.8 fit right into my supercharged 3.8?

Also anyone know what other years will fit?

Thanks, I will be looking for a replacement tomorrow.

the amperage is different, as is the pulley, but that could be changed easily. Main thing is that the amperage is lower on the 3.8 NA and the 3.8 SC is higher. Also, the wiring changed in later years.

Alright, thanks guys. I guess I will just look for the one for the 3.8SC tomorrow.

Just another thing to pay for :-)
