My flex plate ring gear is pretty worn so ill be in the market for a new one. Are the billet flex plates really worth it for 750+ dollars or will the stocker hold up? I plan on adding bigger injectors to my truck.

Alot of guys say that is a waste..i have seen a few broken ones....but never two in a row yet.
there is also the option of a di cyro treated one...not sure if it has any benifits or not.
but have not seen one of those broken or the ats billets.

Carson doesn't have his website up and running yet to handle web orders, but he can give you the price if you call the shop.

I personally can't see breaking a flexplate on one of these rigs due to just HP alone. I've seen people run stock flexplates in extremely high horsepower street cars. The only time I see flexplates blow to pieces is when a car is on the TransBrake at the track. That seems to stress them more than just power alone.

Honestly i would prob run it..maybe price a cyro treatment..
that money might be spent better on a fluid damper hpop etc...
just pulling the tranny twice would be a pain.

If you want to know for sure call bts and get his opionion..since
his tranny will be bolted to it.

Well like you said I would rather spend it on something more useful as well. If a cheapo one will hold. Then it holds. Since it seems uncommon for them to break I'm most likely gonna go with a cheap one. Thanks for the replys guys.
