What a Mechman 220 amp Focus alt looks like! New Pics Installed!


Recommended Posts

I figured that I'd post up the pics of the new alt that I got from Mechman yesterday. I made the 4 hour drive to Tennessee to pick it up and can't wait to get it in the car. I took some pics of it for all the other Focus owners out there to see. I honestly can't wait to compare it's performance to that of the now broken Iraggi alt that I have that's supposedly a 260 amp unit. I've had nothing but trouble with it for the past 2.5 years. I love the fact that the new alt comes with a 2 year waranty right out of the gate. So, no issues like the Iraggi from the start. I also wanted to thank Josh from Mechman for his excellent customer service and help along the way. I called him on a Friday and the alt was done and ready for me by Tuesday to pick up. Nothing but class here. I strongly reccomend that anyone wanting to upgrade their alt take the time and money to go through Mechman. Especially the Focus and ZX3 owners out there. I'll update soon on how well the unit is performing in my car.

It looks and feels like grey powder coat, but I can't tell for sure. There is another color of aluminum on it so that is why I think it's been coated.

Lets see some installed pics!

It's got a aluminum grey coating on it to prevent corrosion.

I took a few of them yesterday with it installed. I'll post them up when I get home from school. It's crazy how much room is in there since this alt is quite a bit smaller than the Iraggi that was in there.
