I have no experience with a reman'd alternator for the 6, but when I was younger I had tried that route. Didn't have the best experiences, but at that time it was what I could afford. Not to mention changing an alternator on my vehicles 20 years ago was a hell of a lot easier than the 6, usually could exercise the warranty so I was just out a small bit of time.

For me, I wouldn't go that route since it is such a pain to dig that alternator out to change.

You are right, too much work to remove alternator to take any chances of cheap alternator going bad, just going to pony up and get the oem.
