OEM is always the best choice IMHO.

+1 it's always better to go with factory stuff even though the alt is a rebuild!

You roll the dice with a rebuilt one my factory one took a dump, got another one from Vato Zone and it took a crap on me after 4 months, took it back got another one so far so good. Have fun changing that shit out

True but if your oem takes a dump after a year or whatever the warr. is you are SOL. They are a common issue so like you said its a roll of the dice.

OEM..... yeah you get a lifetime warranty on the autozone etc... But your stuck somewhere and need a tow or something due to saving a few bucks and getting a lifetime warranty.. No way..
