I have been looking to get a better alternator for my Versa since I run too much "power" from it (amp,subs, underglow). Apparently I need more power so I have heard a Sentra alternator fits the Versa

Does anyone know if a Sentra alternator is better than an 08 Versa's stock alternator?

I don't like that my cars rpms shoot really low and causes my car to shake sometimes.

the mr18 (versa) and the mr20 (sentra) use the same alternator. both put out 110 amps.the qr25 (sentra se-r) uses a different alternator but also produces the same amps. hope this clears the air a little..

The sentra one sucks!!!! The one on my versa seemed better, but since they are the same, that's odd. Maybe the IPDM (intelligent power distribution module) was better in the versa than the sentra. I have a pioneer radio, 7 speakers and an amp that puts out 480w total, along with a steering wheel interface module, HD radio, and HID 35w lighting. It can't handle all of this. When the lights are turned on, there in a small pop noise thru the speakers, and the radio resets itself, (like I just turned the key), and the interior dome lights will flicker a little more then the versa did. It was almost not noticeable on the versa. Do not buy a sentra alternator!!! I might look into a Maxima or Altima V6 alternator.
