    As far as I know its either Tom with Wenstrom Design Fabricators adapter ring or Mark with G-Force Transmissions 1-pc. yoke design with the 2013/14 cup and the 2007-2012 splines.

    +1 on Wenstrom. Did the conversion a few years ago. Happy with it.

    That must be the same piece as I have pictured in my post #382?

    It is has been a while and I don't remember who/where I got it from......I think it was Mark.

    When I bought that thing, I figured I was going to have the oem flange assy. off of the tail shaft and either install the lighter 2011/12 flange (additional cost) OR remove the heavy harmonic ring off of mine...........I might as well just buy the adapter flange/yoke that does it all at the transmission end, for this install.

    I think GForce engineering used to make them, might want to give them a call

    Hm, they responded that they never made one of these... So it must be G-Force Transmissions instead of GForce engineering. I sent them a mail yesterday but got no answer yet

    Thanks for keeping this going guys. I am still willing to make the adapters (not the whole yoke pictured above) once I have 5 people ready to buy. I need to make a batch of 10 to keep the costs where they are and need to have half of them sold before it is worth me having them on the shelf since it takes a year or more to sell the rest of them. Too long to justify without having that many sold up front. Thanks everyone for the patience and understanding when it comes to the quantity issue.

    Thanks man! Glad we could get enough interest to make another run as well. Always fun to see parts I've made on stuff out in the world, rather than just parts on machines in manufacturing plants!
