    Explain "blow up". Do you mean the alt dies or it literally comes apart? I had my car about 9 years and I'm on my 5th alt. Well, I say 5th alt. I have a PA Performance alt that I've rebuilt 2 times in four years.

    My PA alt does the same thing when the brushes or rectifier wear out. I keep getting the rebuild kit from AmericanMuscle and rebuild it myself. I even got a spare kit in the glove compartment. Lol
