Getting started on my S10, will be a slow build due to budgeting limits but I'm starting with the Alt.

It's a 2.2l s10 so the stocker has to go and there aren't aftermarket bolt ons that have good idle output...so I'm adapting a DC Power 270 SP.

It's tight and not much room to work with (the alt is friggin heavy compared to stock !! )

I built an extension bracket out of 1/4" steel and just ground it down 'till it fit. It was a bitch getting the top bolt started by myself 'cause I had to hold it in place and sneak the bolt in from the back at the same time.

Here are the pics of my progress so far.


CURRENT SYSTEM:

  • Alternator:
    1. Stock alt on mids/highs
    2. Isolated DC Power 270 SP - Charging @ 16.8v

Yeah, they really should have put a little more effort into making the standard 4.3 alt bolt up to the 2.2.

Plan is 2 15" RE MTs - cut-through - on a Soundstream XXX 4000d - 14vbats/16v charging

Plans may change though...regardless of the end system I need a beefy electrical foundation :bunny:

Just curious why you would make a bracket instead of getting a mechman 270a made for the 2.2l?

Didn't know they made one for the s10 and if it bolt right up I doubt its a beefy as this one. There just isnt enough space in the stock location for a large alternator. What does a mechman 270 made for a 2.2l s10 do at idle?

**edited for spelling

165amp at 700rpm-full output at 1700rpm. Not sure what the specs were on that dc power.

185ish @ idle

are you sure that mechman would bolt into the stock location on a 2nd gen 2.2l s10 ? What alt casing do they use?

Not that it matters at this point :)
