16 Volt Alternator
Quality - Value - Service
Metroplex Alternator manufactures several styles of 16 Volt Alternators for use with 16 Volt batteries. Many race car enthusiasts prefer to use 16 volt batteries to crank the high compression engines used on the race track. The 16 Volt Denso style alternators are very compact and lightweight and are available in several mounting styles. The 16 Volt Denso units produce from 30 to 50 amps depending on the mounting style. The Delco style 16 Volt alternators provide approximately 60-80 amps in the Delco 10SI type units and 105-140 amps in the Delco CS130 type units. The delco units are larger and heavier than the Denso units but are still small for the amount of amperage they produce and the Delco 16 Volt Alternators are available in many more mounting configurations. All of our 16 Volt Alternators are Self Exciting One Wire units. One Denso style is available in chrome finish and the Delco 10SI style is also available in chrome finish.
