    Hi just wondering if the generator for a VX V6 would be ok for my supercharged VX V6?
    I called repco, he said there were two different types (supercharged being like $20-$30 more)
    I asked him what the difference was and he said he didn't know and it didn't tell him?
    He suggested maybe the belt thing could be a difference size, and mounts may be in different places?
    Also would the voltage/amps be the same?

    Just don't want to fork out for a brand new one and find it's not my problem and i've found a cheap second hang one but it just says it suits VX V6 Ecotec Engines. I'm a rookie, so any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    What's wrong with your alternator? You might just need a new voltage regulator.

    Try an RE61 OEX reg. Rear casings on the Alternators are different but I doubt the armature will be a failed unit
