3G Upgrade Question...will 2002 3.8 alternator work?

I have a 93 mustang lx coupe and am currently in the process of putting a 408W in the car, and with the increased drains that will surely be placed upon it by a 340lph in tank pump and accessories I was wondering...

I have a really good 130 amp, low mileage 3G alternator off a 2002 mustang 3.8...can I use this as part of a 3G upgrade or is it only from 1994-2000 cars you can do this with?

Thanks in advance,
Dan

Ok, did some more searching, and it turns out this is a 6G alternator, not a 3G, however it puts out 60 at idle, 105 amps peak and is an obscure alternative to the much more popular 3G upgrade, only difference is somewhat in the wiring, and is supposed to be somewhat more durable than the 3G with heavier duty bearings...

kind of on the fence about using this one...some say it's easier to wire in but, I'm unsure, one guy said he ran it on his car with the high beams on, A/C full blast and was still 13.75-13.9 volts at idle...should work with an all motor 408W, electric fans, injected...might give it a try.
