You don't want to know about me? We haven't got a relation ship yet do we?

Don't you think I  might be the best source for your question?

No you can't put the Passat Alternator on (as far as I know!).

You can put on an older 90AMP alternator but you will also need the bracket,
would not bolt without it!

Audi has 110, 115, 120 Alternators with the same housings but it will still
be "expensive".  Personally I don't think they are expensive.  The housing
of the 110 alternators is larger than the older 90AMP meaning: more room to
dissipate heat, meaning more power!  Heat in an alternator means REDUCED
performance! Keep that in mind.

You don't want to REDUCE the electrical power available since our cars love
electrical power and "as is they are" they are UNDER supplied!

Good luck and don't hesitate to ask! Questions (and answers are FREE!).

Take care,
Avi, a little hurt but still trying to maintain a good spirit!

The reason I'm asking is because of my upcoming
move to Iowa. I just wanna know, just in case
Something happens along the drive over, or while
out there. It seems the 200 110/115 amp
alternator is expensive in rebuilt form. I saw a
pic of a passat alternator and one from a later
vanagon, but not sure if they will fit. I think
the pulley needs to be changed, however.

I know about Avi, so please don't tell me again.
I would consider his rebuild, but my question is
for a different purpose, altogether.

BTW-I've seen some listings for 115 amp
alternators fro 200's. Did they ever come with
