This model specifically says it fits all Foresters 98-2008 and is 180 amp.

This model says it fits Foresters 06-09 turbo and is 200 amp.

I don't see why if the first one fits all from 98-2008 why the second one would be any different?

I'd like to get the 200 amp model for only $30 more.

I talked to Ohio Generator and they were out of my price point and a few here like the Iraggi alternators.

I researched OE replacements on Advanceautoparts.com and found there is a different pt#s. 06+ x and xt both call for the same alt. 03-05 x and xt seem to take the same. If they list one for 98-08, it must be somewhat universal. It may be as little as a different pulley. The belt on the 06+ is 1/2" shorter, but has the same # of grooves.

Hmmm.. I guess I will just get the 180, that's at least twice what I have now and of course the new one will be at full output much sooner.

Thanks for that research though. Sounds like the 200 could work, but I don't want to chance it not.
