ohmega07 has a spectacular aura aboutohmega07 has a spectacular aura about
Default Got Alt rebuilt to 200amp!

thought i would share, i had been thinking that my 07 mega cab had the 160amp alt, but it had the 136! Either way im glad i had it done because the guy said it wasnt working as it should when he got into it! im pretty happy with it though, good mod for 85 bucks, even has a one year warranty!

Oh-- and as a side note, this was my first attempt on the serpentine belt.... I almost..... almost, got so pissed that i was willing to pay the 80 bucks for install because that tension pulley came out easy, but not sure what i was doin wrong, but it took me hours.... yes HOURS!! my shoulder still hurts, ha ha, got tired of doing it the way directions say and just said f-it, used a small box wrench to muscle it over the alt pulley. Lesson learned i guess.

waiting on UPS man to bring me my 180 Tstat.

On my 07 the manual stated to use a 15mm socket on the tensioner pulley and turn counter clockwise to remove the belt. No matter if you got it off and it looks good and works good. Congrats.
