Bosch AL45X Alternator

So I can only find one reference to this alternator in the search function, and it was about a bunch of failed alternators at V@V last year. When I moved I boxed up a bunch of parts and I'm having problems figure out if the AL45X was for my 2800cs, or if it was the spare alternator that I kept for my 2002 as part of a parts cache that was in the trunk when I bought it. Anyone else run this alternator on their 2002? It's a one wire configuration with the regulator built in.

Thanks for the reply Paul. Can you tell me, is this what the backside of the e21 Alternator looks like?

I don't know what the AL45X is for, but it's not for any 2002. Beyond the stock AL89X (2002) and AL40X (2002tii), the easiest upgrade to fit is the 65-amp AL44X.

Yea, I'm pretty sure the Al45X is for my E9 2800cs and that the alternator I have a picture of above is the E21 alternator for my 2002.
