Haha good point alternators are cheap though.

You'd have to cross reference the part numbers and see if they are the same. They could probably do that for you at a dealership or auto parts store. I wouldn't attempt to just switch them though without checking first. The output could be different, the voltage regulator might be different, wiring connections might be different. You don't want to put it in and end up frying something.
