Well... Maybe your old one was Delivering more Voltage than Normal... Try to Measure with a Tester the Total Amount of Voltage when the Car have the Headlamps On, and the Engine is Around 1,500 RPM`s ... if it still says 13, then it is Normal... if it Lowers Below 12V, it is Bad.

Good Luck!

the alt will only put out max volts above 2K rpms, so bring it up to about 2200rpms and check it again, should show 14.4 if its good.
