If I mail you a section of my shifter handle can you replicate it in aluminum? Once done I want to polish it then have a mopar M or something engraved in it.

i can only offer the cheap machining/free part deal if its something i also want, or that I can sell..I dont think I'd be able to with your shifter handle, so it would be expensive for me to make one for you :( unless its really simple. do you have a pic?

Well the main part that I want is simple. the final rounding I can do myself with a file or my belt sander if your machine cant.





The second part would be a little more complicated I think, but the little plastic part that rotates I can just re-use.





If you could make these I would be willing to pay good money for them. The automatic shift handles are so bland, and the shifter is usually a focal point of a hot-rod.

Hmm..I'm totally unfamiliar with automatic shift levers in these cars, I dont think Ive ever even seen one. Im guessing there is a button on the side you push with your right hand thumb, and thats the more complicated second piece in your pics? And the first piece is just a snap on cover?

It looks like the second piece has some moving parts in it.

I dont think a copy out of aluminum will work, I think it needs to be redesigned in aluminum so that the mechanism makes sense and its as easy as possible to machine. Which is a good thing not bad!

I can make a curved surface with a ball mill with a nice finish.

I dont think I can do this project with out an entire lever assembly in hand (i.e. the parts you want to "bling" plus the rod they attach to, so I can redesign the whole thing)

If other people want this too, then it may be a project I can take on and sell for a reasonable price. Otherwise I'd have to charge you a couple hundred for one, because this would take several days to redesign and machine.

Unless you see a simpler solution? I'm looking at this through just your pics, I am not at all familiar with the parts. Tell me if there is an easier way!

Well I don't need this handle until spring so I could just mail the whole thing to you, and you could tell me what you think, If you cant make it I'll paypal you $20 plus return shipping. If you can make it I'll buy it.

P.S. the whole thing is fairly simple, the button just slides in a channel, the rotating piece in the middle hooks when you press it in and pushes down on the shift rod. The top piece just slips over the top and has a screw to hold it on. Originally I wanted a totally new T-handle out of aluminum but I doubt that would be feasible. But you are good at designing things, if you could make a differently designed T-handle for cheaper than the parts I want, I'm down for that too.

Its a deal! That does sound simpler and I think I have a better grasp of it. If possible, send the rod it attaches to as well so I can be absolutely sure about the design and test it. If thats not realistic, then you can send just the plastic pieces, and I can probably infer the geometry of the rod it attaches to.

Its good you dont need it until spring, because that gives me time to fit it in sooner. This might be more realistic than I thought, and I do need practice on more difficult tasks like this, especially if you are willing to buy one.

I'll PM you my address.

I dont think sending the rod itself is possible because its like the whole shifter under the car, but I will check to see. here are some pics of the handle itself for the time being.

okay i think i can figure it out without the rod. can you include the red piece? then i can make sure whatever i make fits right. you only want the two black pieces made out of aluminum, not the red piece, right?

DetroitTurbo: I PM'd you my address, go ahead and send the parts. Im interested in doing it now!

Okay I think I know what the next project will be.

I'm thinking a dirt-cheap, all-corners-cut, drop-in 3" swingvalve for our cars, which fits like the stock one and connects the turbine housing all the way to the downpipe.

I believe it would involve the following:

5 bolt flange to mount to the turbine housing
downpipe flange (with spherical cutout for donut, like existing)
formed sheet metal and/or mandrel bent tubing piece to connect the two
the flapper valve itself installed in the 5 bolt flange
O2 sensor bung

If we can find 5 bolt flanges, and downpipe flanges, thats a huge part of the puzzle right there. the rest should be pretty easy.

I have a perfect platform for testing this on, because I need this swingvalve on my daytona, and I can take out my manifold and drop it in quick.

I dont want this to be a multi month project, I want to whip this together so we can have a $99 3" swingvalve as quickly as possible.

Must find flanges, flapper valves, and see what kind of sheet metal or tube can connect them..

Reinforcing bars can be easily welded on to help support the weight of the exhaust, since this will just be sheet metal.

How about a topper for the Weber / Holley carbs, so they people can use the cone style filters?

can someone check these out and see if they are what we need for this?

downpipe flange:

2 Bolt 3" 76mm Inlet Exhaust Downpipe Testpipe Test Pipe Donut Flange Adapter | eBay

5 bolt flange:
T3 T3/T4 TURBO CHARGER EXHAUST DOWNPIPE FLANGE + ALUMINUM GASKET | eBay

Are these right?

What about flapper valves

The Pope has really helped outThe Pope has really helped out
actually I have a part long since gone from being made that Rick D made years ago. It is a solid donut for 3" down pipes. But it is made to the right angle for 2.5" swing valves, not the angle for 3" swing valves which is completely different. It is a solid SS piece that allows the 3" DP to fit into the SV farther and not leak.
