Alternator upgrade..130A? 140A?

The 95 900 has what I assume to be a perfectly-fine 90a alternator.
Since it's old, and I intend to be running a bigger fuel pump on top of the electric top, I figured I'd upgrade to a better alternator.

I've more-or-less deduced from Google that a 130A alternator is a direct swap.

Anything I should be looking for specifically?
Any specific years? Do I need to do anything with pulleys, or just buy a new alternator and toss 'er on?

I've got a 130a/140a unit from a 9-5 in my 97 900. I do not recall if I had to swap pulleys or not.

You should be good to toss in with the caveat of maybe needing to swap pulleys.

eEuro's site lists a 130a and 140a, but they're all V6 alternators.
Weird. I'll see what's available!
Thanks!

This description lists for all variants: Rebuilt 130 amp alternator for any 9-3 mid '00 (3dr/5dr from VIN# Y2018001 on, Viggen all & convertible from VIN# Y7006011 on) to mid '01 (3dr/5dr up to VIN# 12054529, Viggen all & convertible up to VIN# 1701796. 9-5 4cyl mid '00 (from VIN# Y3043797 on) to mid '01 (up to VIN# 13054631).

Oh...weird. it's a pretty narrow fitment window. Looks like a half-year change


Thanks!
