Every aspect of a build can teach you something; even if it’s something you’ve done a million times. A few issues ago, we did an engine transplant and while we were working on it, we realized that we could give our engine transplant more reliability by using Powermaster’s High Amperage Alternator. These new Made-in-the-USA components are designed to give your engine the electrical response it needs to perform better than the one that came with your stock engine!

Powermaster has been in the business of manufacturing and rebuilding high performance and heavy-duty alternators and starters for over fifteen years. The Powermaster Alternators line of high output alternators are designed to provide extra amperage for people that have added additional electrical loads, such as stereo amplifiers, electric cooling fans, Halogen lights, etc. If you’re looking at your engine from just an aesthetic standpoint, you might be interested in a chromed or polished unit to match a detailed-under-the-hood show car. Whether your needs are for show or performance, Powermaster has the right alternator for your vehicle.

Now, let us show you how we improved our engine by using Powermaster Performance products.
