    for price i got tcases also so got a price break, i don't feel right about quoting prices for other peoples stuff, but it was very competitive! i think they have prices on site. as far as customer servicegoes. kyle was the one i dealt with. he answerd any questions i had usually same day or next. for ship time when i first spoke to kyle about the adaptor they were still getting the bugs out. mine took about 4 weeks. but i would hope since i got mine they can crank em out?:D

    No, but he has one of the best prices I've found on the 32 spline shaft.

    I'll throw in a free 31 spline ford input gear with any 203/205 adaptor sale - free
    You don't have to hunt for the rare th400 version, just get your current 205 bored out.

    No drawbacks to using a ford gear in a chev case, one spline, no big deal. Still uses the same 8620 billet mainshaft.

    We've got the chev fig 8 versions on the shelf, ford and chev "round" are off the mill tomorrow, so lead time is getting very good.

    right now I run a 700R4 with a 2" spacer, TH350 adapter and a figure-8 205 behind that. Trying to figure out what a sane upgrade path might be. I swapped the 32-spline front output into this 205, so I dont really wanna dump it for another 205. I have half a 203 laying around here somewhere... hmmmm...
