    Hello Hot Rod Works,

    I wanted to say thank you for the great transmission adapter kit you provided. My nephew is back driving his truck and loves the available overdrive. The install went together smoothly and we were impressed with not only the fitment of the parts, but the beauty of the machine work. All items fit/operate as expected.

    Thanks again. We will not hesitate to do business with you again, if needed.

    Just wanted to say thanks for the ford t5 to chevy conversion plate. It was very good quality and had very good hardware. I was thinking about making my own but when i noticed the quality of the one you sell, i was glad i didnt atempt it. Every bolt hole was spot on where it needed to be and very well machined..keep up the good work and be blessed.

    I am putting a WC T5 into my 95 vette to replace the clunky 4+3 transmission and OD unit – SO I ordered the adapter plate 2120 GM bellhousing to ford T5 pattern GM transmission adapter. The adapter plate was WAY beyond expectations ! So pretty I almost hated to sandwich it between my T5 and my bellhousing. The machining was TOP NOTCH and the instructions were clear .The bolts and small parts were all there and were high quality. It fit into my bellhousing like a factory part. I ran into an issue with my transmission front bearing retainer (not at all their fault) and they were very helpful and knowledgeable on the phone. I have been hot rodding for 40 years and this is one of the nicest aluminum machined parts I have ever bought.
