IF your a cheapskate like me theres aways option three. Cut out an existing wheel center make a jig and weld up an adapter plate.

Where are you at that it cost 1200 bucks for a broach job.

Pissing down your boots I am not. I just cant wrap my tiny brain around these prices. I could see paying it for a tranny adapter plate yeah the machining is simpler but the math isnt and the size of the billet is larger.

BTW the person who has the adapter please post up. Is it billet or cast or... Steel..
