“6 phase Billet-Tech alternators offer more low RPM output than OEM C5 or C6 alternators. These unit features cutting edge 6 phase hairpin stator technology for incredible durability and high RPM stability. Instead of a single rectifier assembly, this unit features TWIN rectifiers and twice as many diodes to spread out the heat, and dramatically increase durability. This unit also uses 15% less horsepower per Kilowatt of energy produced, as compared to OEM alternators. The installation of a Billet-Tech alternator will immediately result in slightly higher overall voltage, better battery condition, faster power windows, brighter headlights and better overall performance. 
In addition to fundamentally more efficient technology, these units also feature:
  • Attractive Billet-Aluminum housing
  • Oversized charge post for sturdy cable connections
  • Premium low-drag bearings
  • Ultra-precision balanced rotor for 20,000 rpm capability
  • Twin rectifiers with 12 press fit diodes
  • Hairpin epoxy re-enforced vibration resistant stator
  • Precision pulley machined from bar stock (decorative and custom pulleys sold separately)

Billet-Tech Corvette alternators are equipped with a 2.5” diameter pulley, and use the stock length belt. Adding a 4 gauge charge and ground cable is recommended when installing a 240 amp unit.”
