I've got a 2006 Poe-lease CV...the alternator is acting funny. I haven't had it tested yet, but I fear that it is bad.

Azone doesn't carry the P71 200 amp alternator.

Rockauto has them, but the standard alternator puts out 135amps...and they are cheaper. the standard 135 amp aletnator interchangeable w/the 200 amp Police option?

Re: Alternator
Shouldn't be a problem. The Police use a lot more equipment that uses more electric.

Re: Alternator
You could also find a shop that rebuilds them.

Re: Alternator
Either buy one from a junkyard for cheap or get a remanufactured one with a lifetime warrenty. I dont know what it is with ford 6g alternators but it seems like even rebuilt/remanufactured ones are hit or miss. I bought a rebuilt one for my 02 gt from autozone a year or so ago. Luckily I bought the one with a warrenty because after a month or so it crapped out on me. The new one only puts out 13.5v or so, so Im just waiting for this one to crap out on my too.

Re: Alternator
If you intend keeping the car , get the correct new one and save yourself a possible lot of grieve swapping out faulty units for ever and a day from junkyard , cheap alternatives . As an example , see post above . You get what you pay for .
