94 318 Alt info?

I'm going to be needing an alternator for my car. I may have one lined up, but I need to know all the specs of mine, before I buy the new one.

I have a 94 318. the number on the alternator is A14V13.

Basically I just need to know all the numbers that pertain to the ratings of my current alt.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you.

I assume that's all there is to know? Considering the volts should be the same for most cars.

If you are looking for a replacement alternator, amperage is the last thing you should look at.
