    I was looking into one of those stainless steel high mount throttle brackets that's availible for our cars. Mine is hacked up pretty good and the more I make her nice, the more I want to replace the cheesy crap. I saw one on e-Bay, but it's almost $70, PLUS shipping!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7927309157&category=42604

    You know the seller..... and I never realized how bad they must be paid to hawk stuff on e-Bay like that.

    Anybody know of a SANE source for this piece?

    Thanks gang! :thumleft:

    Those are made by AR Engineering and the retail price shown on the website is $80 for that setup. The distributors price on ARE parts aren't that great, but I think Rick gets a lot better deal than the regular distributors. I'm a distributor for ARE and my cost with the shipping factored in is less than $10 under what his starting price is.

    That's the exact setup I have, bought from Rick on eBay. It's really a pretty nice piece, and I thought the price was reasonable. I use the Lokar trans kickdown cable with mine.

    So what your saying is I should deal with Rick? I know it's a slick piece and I need it....

    Oh well, it's only money, right Kev? :D

    I might have one more on hand, if I do I could get it to you for $65. I know I have a few B and RB set ups, but the small block sets don't stay in stock very long.

    It's the exact same setup as the auction. I thought I gave the last one to Billyb but if have one more. If you want that one let me know, I'll also have more in a couple weeks.

    I have a used one if anyone wants one. It won't fit my Indy set up. I had to get a different one. $30 plus shipping. No springs
