I'm looking to order an alternator for my Cuda.  I did not notch my frame rail, but now I have switched my front timing cover to the 2011 and up car/Jeep front cover.  I've found one from Bouchillion that sounds like it is definitely what I need and will order if I have too.  Only being from Canada, I was hoping to maybe just get a alternator from either the Dodge dealer, Napa or something like that.  Will any random alternator from a 2011+ V8 car work and me not have to hack my painted frame rail?

Cut from Bouchillion website:

This 1 wire Alternator is the answer for that 5.7L, 6.2L Hell Cat, or 6.4L Gen III Hemi Engines that have MSD, NON Chrysler/Mopar Performance or Aftermarket Management Systems that do not control the Alternator Charging Circuit. It's also smaller than most at 4.5"and still does 180A

Then there's this?

Not sure why one was direct bolt in and another required a custom pulley when both used the same alternator?

I ended up just taking the lumps and bumps of being a Canadian and ordered the Bouchillion alternator.  400 USD and another 129 USD for shipping.   :'(  And I'm still not done, because I know FedEx is going to gouge me another 100+ Dollars for being my broker for taxes and duties etc.  1000 dollar Canadian alternator.    :dunno:

Out of the 220, 180, and 160 MDS alternators the 160 is the only small case of the three. Part #04801866AC fit in my ebody without needing to modify anything. Will need to run inline with a pre-67 voltage regulator to step voltage to 14.7
