Default Alternator swap?

Does anyone know for sure that the 2001 toyota highlander alternator fits the 2001 es300? I know they have the same motor but the ES alternator has an 80 or 90 amp and the highlander has a 100-130 amp! Just want to know if I would need to splice them or if it'll plug in the same?

should be the same, along with Avalon [100amp]

It's been done on here before and a few have said it bolts up no problem.

Ok cool because I have a big system and I burned up my battery and the alternator and I know they have bigger amp alternators in other cars! Just wasn't sure if it's the same year cars that have the same alternators?

It's completely plug and play, I installed mine about 2 weeks ago.
