So the other day I was doing a burnout, I know.. you'd think I'd grow out of that stuff, and I heard a loud bang. It turns out the plastic cooling fan on my alternator came apart and the fins all blew out of it. Unfortunately when they broke, they flew up and hit my hood which now has a big dent in it and a bare spot where the paint came off. I noticed the alternator on my 07 Avalanche does not have those cooling fins. Is it possible to put this newer style alternator in my 88 SS?

Yes. If you search this forum, you'll find information for upgrading to a CS 130 alternator, good luck!!

Just put this in a week ago and I'm very happy with it. I also have the resistor pigtail for it.
I don't expect the metal fan to fly apart.
