Default i need a new alt what brand is the best

i have heard of people upgrading with higher output atl's
is that worth the money and trouble
should i use a factory part
i can get a brand new one
with a lifetime warrenty on an autozone model
for the price of a re-man from from
nappa ex...all about the same price but the only new one i could find
was at the autozone im sure ford could order one for much much more
but is it worth the extra hundred or so......

after looking into it the new motorcraft alt is about 150 more
and the one i have now that broke is on a 2007
does not seem like the motorcraft part was that nice
to begin with so why pay 150 more................

www.car-part.com

search all salvage yards in your state. I got a alternator out of a 2008 for 45 dollars. The truck had less then 6000 miles on it.
