    Does anyone here run or know much about the doubler kits from Wagoner Machine? How do they compare to the ones from ORD or from Stazworks? They look like they are right between the 2 in price.

    WMS offers any rotation you want. Thats what sold me, along with awesome customer service.

    I've been running it behind big blocks for several years now, and no problems.

    ORD is good
    WMS is good
    have no exp with Stazworks, but am not opposed to trying one.

    What setup to you run it with? What all does the kit come with? What exactly do you mean "any rotation you want"?

    By rotation he means the clocking on the 205. They can put it anywhere from stock angle to completely flat.

    I like Stazworks' price by far. But they dont do clocking. They will send you the two halfs if you are competant enough, or know someone who is, to weld it at the degree you want.

    The kit comes with the adapter, and the re-splined 203 shaft.

    The "any clocking you want" means that they will clock the 203 upside down if you want, and roll the 205 up as well.

    I had them put my 203 upside down, and roll my 205 up flat. This creates more belly clearance, but creates exhaust routing issues for guys running dual 3", and increases the front driveshaft angle alot. I counteracted the d-shaft angle by turning my pinion up, and running 1410 u-joints.

    I'd just like to say that the ORD kit is alot more "Bling" than the wms kit. and it is a more complete kit from what i've seen. (gaskets and what not)
