    I honestly don't know what Ford is asking today. They were under a grand when I bought a couple but I have no idea where they are now. I'd fire off a request to Autonation and see what they can do for you.

    I got mine from from Shelby America as a take off for $300 about 3 years ago...brand new off of a Super snake conversion. I dont know if they have any, but its worth the savings.
    I’ve had my retrofit on for my ‘12 for about 3 years.

    Got my adapter last night when I got home.
    Looks great.
    Can't wait to get this thing installed.

    Thanks BlackBolt9

    I’m also interested in this. If we buy the adapter what else is needed? Just the drive shaft? Also what is projected cost for adapter?

    For adapter that bolts to trans output flange.
    • Adapter
    • New Ford output flange washer, seal and nut
    • Cap screws to bolt adapter to trans output flange
    • Cap screw and special crescent shaped washers to bolt 13-14 CF driveshaft to adapter
    • 13-14 CF driveshaft
    • Reuse rear end driveshaft bolts and special crescent washers
    If you read threw this thread Tob has document and shows all that is needed.

    Also shown is the CV joint tool that I bought to remove my oem trans. output flange. I also bought the other parts mentioned above, seal, nut, washer but I do not have them in the picture.

    The other guys have listed what you need. If you buy one from me, I always send an email with the .pdf that Tob created with all that information along with directions on how to install everything. Now that I've made another run of them, I do have more on the shelf ready to ship out. Best way to contact me for that is through my business email. Tom at WenstromDesignFab dot com.

    The good part about being "local" is having something a day quicker! HAHA Glad you are happy with it so far and look forward to you being even more happy with it once it's installed!

    I dug out the box that has all of the parts I need for this upgrade, here are the part numbers for the 1-pc. replacement flange option........

    ^^^This is if you are going to replace the front and the rear with new hardware, if you are only doing the front flange hardware you will only need three, instead of six. I don't remember if those flange bolts are "torque yield" or not? If they are, all should be replaced.

    Just would like to say that I was one of first to do this mod on my 07. Have not had a single issue, NVH etc. I do get some looks from the local mechanics at the Ford dealer when I take it in for routine maint. Once they study it they highly approve.

    Just thought I'd throw it out there that I still have several of these on the shelf from the last batch of them that I made.
