I didn't cut my stator cover, but did reroute the wires up over the top of the trans instead of down under and behind the clutch arm. Covered the wires with heater hose and ziptied to the lifting eye on top of the trans.
GCExtreme is probably the best bet for the mod plate, $100 on ebay. TOC did have the plate, at 2-3 times the price.
Saw a stator case on ebay too.
