I should also mention that the sport comes standard with a 16 and 30 amp alternator, each have their own regulators.

Is the (apparently new) regulator used on the IS Sport compatible to retrofit to the older engines?

I have been using the alternative Amazon regulator for 100 hrs. with a small 2 inch wide fan blowing directly on the fins also. It is working great. I just piggybacked the hot wire for the fan to B+ wire on the regulator. It switches on and off with the master.

Hey Dave, which regulator is that from Amazon? Also, you might be interested to know this week I am doing a transition training for the newest owner of N588DF.
