I'm finally getting around to doing the swap to the newer stator and rotor, I'd already burned through a couple of the stock/rick's reg recs and have a mosfet on there that tests good, but the top of the stator is nice and burnt and wasn't putting out any voltage before I pulled it off. Might still upgrade to a compufire later, but for now I just want to get the damn thing back on the road.

The question I have is are there any reverse threaded bolts involved in removing the rotor? I have the factory manual and it doesn't list any, but want to double check before I start taking a breaker bar or impact gun to stuff. Thanks

After having slogged through all 21 pages, I would like to thank you guys for staying on top of this and providing at least 4-5 pages that didn't have anything to do with taint stank or Yoda defiling Amadala
:jerkit:
:wink2:

I've been out of the S3 game for a few years and then picked up an '07 on a lark a few months ago. Lo and behold she left me stranded last week (23k miles btw) with a charging issue.

Seems like the general consensus is-

1. Don't get a Rick's Stator- (have they gotten better?...) just get a 2008-2010 Factory stator.
2. MOSFET R/R or your asking for trouble.
3. Get a later model stator cover for better cooling/oil flow.

Anything I'm missing?

Thanks again gents'... I'd buy you all a round if I could :drink::drink:

Get the later model stator, you can get them used off eBay pretty cheap if you look for the tiger or sprint model, if it still has the stock R/R, replace it, it’s not long for this world at 23K miles. Most of the stator covers on eBay are rashed to hell, just buy a new one, the cover and the gasket are the cheapest parts of the whole swap. My 05 has been running fine since I did the swap last year.

Get a series RR, it will keep the stator much cooler. I bought a Shindengen SH847 although a 775 would probably work just fine too. There are decent aftermarket stators for much less than a factory one, Electrosport is one.

I agree with Dr. Gallup. I got the SH847 and Rick's Stator. I was consistently getting the high 13vs. I purchased my RR from here. https://roadstercycle.com/
A tad pricey but dude knows his sh!t and ships fast.

Point 3 wasn't addressed... The later model cover, is because the original cover will not fit over the different dimensions of the later model flywheel/stator combination.

I still picture Yoda defiling Amidala... these days with them wearing masks...

You have got to share which porn site you're finding these things.

(I think I've been damaged by Lord of the G Strings and the Strokemon Porn parody. Yes, those things exist. No, they shouldn't.)

So...

...

...

Moral to the story is, if the retaining screw which affix the stator to the stator case loosen and back out several millimeters, those screws WILL make contact with the flywheel, and as they loosen more, the stator itself will have sufficient free play, so as to also make contact with the rotating flywheel...

There will be a subtle telltale hint, given by the unpleasant, crunching/grinding sounds and corresponding vibrations...

For how long is the question...
