    Today I was driving and my car starting slipping alot through gears. Then, the whole car just shut off on me. I went to turn it on but there was a growling noise. I pushed it home and jacked it up and seen the inspection plate buldging out. When I took out the plate all the bolts fell out and a peice of the flex plate. Does anyone know where i can get the flexplate and also how to double the flexplate, Do i just put two flexplate and bolt them on and dont i need longer bolts since its thicker now.

    the flexplates are just a 'star' shaped plate on the 4G series, if you need one built let me know but you would have to make a lot of power to break one
    I had to build one for the 6G72 RWD swap and I used a commercial grade plate that can be shaped

    How much it will it cost to be made? What happen I guess was the torque converter lock up and the bolts broke and so did the flex plate. I dont know how because I am basically stock except for intake and aem tru boost runnig at 12 psi

    they break from time to time, I have seen them put in doubled up but I dont think thats a good idea, if your stock, you should be fine with an OEM flexplate
    It would require the pump to lock up to hold the torque converter, then you would be into trans repairs
