The CS130 used on the 88 Fiero V6 is an upgrade to the earlier SI units.
It's more compact, better designed and better performance.
I have them on both my 87 GT V6 and my Indy's SD4 engine (pictured below)
They are a direct fit (mounting ears are 180 degrees apart) and only required a connector change.

Get the 88 V6 CS130 alternator - 105 amps (swap your pulley to it if needed).
See Cave http://web.archive.org/web/.../wombatcs/csalt1.htm



AC Delco number 334-2284 - 105 amp unit

Also see my Cave, Rabid-Wombat's CS-130 Conversion for 85-87 V6.
Older L4 use same parts but need to switch pulleys.

If the 105 amp rating isn't enough power, there's a 220A rebuild kit available.

Thanks. We're thinking 250hp. It DOES NOT feel like 4-cylinders when driving.

To answer your question. No.
Simplist way to answer this without getting into electrical hoohaw. More AMPS will not damage your system. As the Alternator only provides what is needed for the electrical systems load requirements. It is much worse when you dont have enough AMPS then having too much available.
