7th gen alternator: 4banger vs v6

Hey All,

I just have a quick question. Are the alternators on the 4 bangers different than the alternators on the v6 model?

I am looking to purchase a high output alternator for my car audio system and I found a good deal on a used DC Engineering alternator, but am not 100% sure if it will fit my vehicle.

The used alternator is a direct fit for a 2005-2010 Honda Odyssey. Do you think it will fit my vehicle? If not, is there a simple modification I could do to make it fit my vehicle?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Check part numbers between models, or register two of the same car on something like rockauto or autozone and search for an alternator to see what you come up with.

Otherwise, google images. Bolt holes usually are the same if they look the same on larger parts to avoid people trying to cram the wrong part in.

I didn't even think of that, thanks. Auto zone confirms that they are in fact different alternators.
