47RE Flexplate Question???

What is the best Flexplate that I can get for under $200?

I found this one SFI Flexplate, Cummins Flexplate, LS1 flexplate, Chevy flexplate, 518 flexplate for Hemi, Ford flexplate, transmision adapters, but it says it may need modification for model year 02, Anyone Know why?? I thought the tranny was the same as the previous 47RE years?

I also emailed the seller to ask why.

I've heard two stories on the 47RE flex plate...first story is the stock one is just fine up to like 650hp...and the second story is you should upgrade it after 100-150hp increase. Take it for what you will, I'm sure you will get an even amount of people who use one of the two philosophy's.

Link doesn't work for me.

I'm also curious about this topic as I'm looking at options for flexplates also.

The owner of the company replied to my email. He no longer makes that flexplate and just removed it from his site; that's the reason why the link doesn't work. As far as it not working on an 02 he said quote "This is because the some of the new cases where not quite in specs. We have found some that are about 1/8" shorter in the bell area so this makes the thicker plate to tight and will damage the pump."

So now, I am now looking for another flexplate (prefer around $200) ANYbody have any suggestions other than stock??

may end up biting the bullit and getting a billet....

Who was it?? Just wondering if it's the same one that I was looking at.
PM me if you want to.
Never mind, I see who it was now.

I'm goin to call a place tomorrow about the one that I found. I will let you know what they say if you want.

I bought one from a member on compD just like that. Zero problems. Much thicker than the stocker. Worth the price tag. They show up on ebay often as well.


*awaits flame from a vendor whom I purchased from before for posting about ebay/outside vendor.

Is yours broke? I have my stock one laying around, but it might out of round. I've heard the stock one is only good for about 400-425. I dyno'd at 450 with a stack but my every day set up was more 380hp. I've done quite a few 4x4 boosted launches and one day last year when I was just getting on it randomly I heard a weird noise like the flex plate rubbing on something. I knew the noise before cause on my 67 dart I had a bad problem with the flex plate bolts coming loose and rubbing just slightly on the housing or something.

So I installed the BD black flex plate. I have pics on my other computer but its MUCH thicker then the stocker. Its superising that the stocker even holds up to 400hp at all. After the install I couldn't get it to make the noise any more. My stocker doesn't look broke, but I guess under enough power it was flexing and rubbing, possibly on the starter.

I tore the center out of the stock flex plate on my Dart, I than went with a B&M plate.

But bottom line if your going to make some power, even if its 400-450hp and you start beating on it you'll start to find the weak links quick.

I think I got the BD plate for $375 or something at the beginning of 08, I think they might have gone up though since.

I have read that the new 6.7 flex plates are the cheapest high-horsepower fix. Dealer cost is around $120-150.

Do a search on Diesel Truck Resource, there have been quite a few posts regarding it. It appears to be a direct bolt-in that is a good split between the 5.9 flex plate (weakest) and the ATS-type billet (strongest) for several bills more. It looks to me to be a good solution if you are in the 350-500HP range.

Anyone got any more info on the PRW plates?

It seems the conclusion is that the 6.7 plates do not work on the 5.9s
