I still don't see anyone posting the correct part # for a Toyota alternator (or any other). I called Toyota dealer and while he was willing to sell it to me, he mentioned that some alternators are different for that engine even for Toyota cars. In particular, automatic vs. stick is one difference but I think he said the Corolla has a version which uses the same engine as the Celica but its part # is different. If I get it from them, there is no guarantee it will work. Lotus price is $1300 ! Just for the part! Gulp!
