Not sure if any "real" companies like Kalphanke or Roger-Dee have plans to make them yet.

I need to make 3 of them myself, I am not a "real" company, just a hack part time home hobbyist machinist...Goal is no more than $150, hopefully shipped in the US at that price.

Any plans on making another one soon? I will gladly send you $200 for one. Really needing this done for my project and for me it's one of the most difficult pieces for me to build.

Well, I guess I am committed now to making a few more!

36x72x1 plate....260 pounds....$846.30..ouch...If and that is a big IF I made 18 plates from this that would be about $47 per plate just in material!

I'm guessing about 10 total is all I'll sell...so to find some other things to make with the left over material..

I'm beat....over 3 hours to clean this stupid plate....I should have spent the extra $$ on virgin aluminum....I think this thing had concrete on it, it would not wash off at all with any kind of soap or cleaner and water.

I used a wire wheel on an angle grinder and then an orbital sander.

The plate was covered up and I saw the big holes after they finally dug it out of the pile but I did not see the small holes. I should be able to get most of the plates people want so far from the good side....if I need to I'll make plates with the small holes and adjust the price a bit..

I guess the upsale on these is that I am using recycled material, heck, I should charge more for that...I'm Green!

So far no broken toes, manhandling this 260 pound plate by myself is a workout, I'm screwed if I have another stroke and I'm under it a bit... (one year anniversary of my stroke in a few weeks!)

Time to cut it into more manageable sizes, bought a new blade for my skill saw at HF, we'll see how it works...I'm sure the neighbors are going to love that sound!

Sanded pic is the one with it covered with water....not perfect but it came out fairly well.

So happy that someone is actually building these. If I could figure out how to post pictures I would show you my project. It's a full frame built s10 blazer minitruck. Volvo engine, T5 transmission, mustang II IFS, and jag IRS. Hydraulics over coils so I can sit it on the ground but yet have it still handle well. Pretty crazy build.

Yep, will update later this week, I don't think I'll be able to do anything else on these for a few days. I'm making 9 plates....I hope I don't lose my @ss on these...due to buying so much material and it not being perfect...live and learn!


On the plus side, some nice drop off pieces for some RX-7 adapters.

Yes,that is my B230FT that I should be working on instead to get it into the car.

Anybody know up to what year or version Whiteblock will bolt up to the 960 bellhousing?

Someone has asked about the RN R version block? I have no idea what series or version that is.

thanks, Mike

At this point, it IS high time someone market RWD 5 cyl oil pans. Dollars to be made from so many conversions planned or happening.

ETA: @ Mueller, sorry to just now hear you had a stroke. Hope you recovered well from that.

I'll be the one to ask the stupid question. Will a 960 bellhousing bolt up to a T4, T5, and a T6 engine? It would be interesting to have a 8.5k rpm T4 build with a big turbo. This adapter obviously solves the T5 transmission to 960 bellhousing problem.

At least first gen T4/5/6

The whiteblocks in the modern gen S60 and V50/C30/S40 might be (but doubt it) different.

That sounds like great news for this adapter plate. More engines to bolt a T5 to

Don't worry I'm sure you will sell yours first. I got 1500 lbs of billet to get through before i can even think about them.



If i need material for them I'll holler.
