    Mopac doesnt stock much in the way of flanges.. if you have your turbo off, I suggest taking it to Alamo to see if they have anything that matches.

    It looks like your about to get a lesson in fabrication.Alamo might have them but I doubt it,so grab some steel,a hacksaw,drill and a file and have at it.

    No offence but you probably got ripped off, if you can, cancel the order and claim you ordered the wrong thing or something, there is atleast 3 people here who can make them and there are tons of places locally and others here who haven't posted yet hwo can make you flanges for just a few bucks.

    he ordered them almost a month ago, I doubt he got ripped off anyway. Most flange websites offer them cheaper then getting someone with a CNC machine to one off it.

    Laser Equation isn't that bad if you buy in quantity. In fact, I'd say they're pretty reasonable. If a number of people need the same flange, that would be the way to go. If you only need one, there are a number of on-line places that are pretty cheap....just search 'em out... eBay is a good place to start....

    you did not get ripped for 125 shipped that is a pretty good deal for everything and shipping.

    Yah, if you don't get them you got ripped if you don't and need a local place, check out Colecraft or something.

    He didn't order them from Laser so how could he pick an order up from a place he didnt order from? Read ALL the posts first..

    Hmmm...you may be right. I suppose the fact that the 5 preceding posts to mine were referring to Laser Equation just MIGHT have something to do with my answer?? And the fact that his post directly succeeded my post regarding Laser Equation?? Perhaps if he was posting a reply to some post other than the one directly preceeding it, he might have quoted the other post...............

    Don't worry about it. I only came here to try and help some of the younger crowd. I was working on cars before most of you were born. I don't have time to read ALL the drivel in EVERY post. I skim over it and try to catch the important stuff. I'll stick to moderating another board and leave this one to you kids....

    Later...
