EJ22 to EJ25 alternator swap?
Posted 23 January 2010 - 12:52 PM
I looked at the ej25 alt. which have 85 or 110amp outputs..
the only difference is the plugs.
the ej22 has a 3pin and the ej25 has a 2pin.
So my question is how to splice it in to the ej22 harness..correctly?
Has anyone done it successfully?

In the 2 plug I believe the connection is made internally, so just eliminate the big wire and splice the other 2 (yellow, through diode to ECU IG., BW to charge light in your original harness)
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but this is my first thoughts.

If you are running with all the options, and two or more sets of lights, huge stereo amp, etc then a 90 or higher would be a good idea.
Just remember that the main output wire from the back of the alt to the main junction as well as the juntion to posistive battery terminal should always be upgraded in addition to any circuits you are going to add for lights, etc. If the battery is drained it will draw as much current as the alt can give and if the stock wiring is built for a 70 and you install a 110 - you now have the potential to pull 110 Amps to the battery. The wireing may not like that.

Good points to consider...though, the wire from the alt to the battery is pretty short - shouldn't offer much resistance.
Resistance isn't the problem.... well it is in a way. Max current capacity (ampacity) of the wire guage is the problem. Maybe it just causes a bit of heat at 110 amps through the stock wire - but if there is any kind of corrosion or a loose connection - 110 amps might well cause a fire where 70 did not. Could be borderline and I would run a second wire to supplement it just to be safe. 110 amps is a LOT of amps. Don't mess around with that much juice.
