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.
