it might not hurt to upgrade to a serpentine belt setup too. the 3 rib belt only just drives the standard alty, let alone a bigger one.

ef is 110 amp and el is 100 amp..
you can fit a ef alternator with the eb 3 belt set up with a little modification..
search threads posted by "paulmac".. he fit an ef alternator to his ed with a little bit of grinding to the brackets...

no...but depending on what alternator your car has now? if you have the mitsubishi one the wires will plug straight in..no wireing mods required..

but if you have the bosch type you will need to cut the 2 wires and solder the mitsubishi type plug onto your loom...
