Stator plate

Just as I'm about to pull my engine out to try and do the tuxedo mod on my 2005, I go on ebay to try and buy a stator plate. Last week I saw it for $90 but then today I check it and the mark up is insane! Is there some kinda of reasonable explanation for this? Either way, it doesn't look like I'm gonna be doing that tux mod anytime soon. Unless someone has one they can sell me for less than an arm and a leg.

Can't tell if that's gcextreme's listing, but the price is insanity. Could be a mistake on the listing?

Have a link?

The only logical explanation I can think of is that he jacked the price up so high that no one would buy them so he can hold his auction up while he makes more. Then when his inventory is replenished, he'll bring the price back down.

Could try sending a message through ebay and see what he says. The listing says there's three available. Maybe he got pranked by someone with access to his ebay account.

I can start manufacturing these if people are in need. Was $90 a standard going rate? I'm happy to cut the plate (I've got some 1/16th aluminum on hand) but don't want to go through the hassle of sourcing the proper screws.

Wiring Diagram + annotations * still undergoing revisions, but still more useful than the generic one. Let me know if you find mistakes or think something additional should be added

The price was lower, I was surprised to see them at $90. Original price should be in a thread here somewhere.

So far, I've only done my stator once in 6 years. If I had to do it a lot more often, I might see the benefit in cutting the case. However, people that have pulled their engines often, have said they got the time down to a couple of hours or so. I pulled mine twice in two days.
OleDirtyDoc and roadpouring like this.

He's got 1 left for $1,000.
better off spending a day removing the engine and doing it right, no room for error when cutting.
