Smile Transmission Adapter update

4x4 Labs has been promising a OM617 to GM manual trans adapter for some time now, so I got curious as to the progress and emailed them about it. Below is the response I got today. If you guys already got this info, disregard.

We are taking deposits for the first run of adapters. I'm offering 10% off if you pre-pay. I sent this email to our email list about a week ago-

Benz folks,
After a few iterations of our GM adapter plate we have a good solid prototype that is ready for production. I will be taking the shop rig on a week long shakedown run on the Rubicon the 15th of this month. I will send an update when I get back.

As I mentioned our first run will be 25 units and we will be accepting deposits for this run right away. I need to place an order for the flywheels in a minimum run of 25 units. I would like to place that order this week. Some of you mentioned you would like to be first run customers so please arrange your deposits by this Friday June 12th to avoid any further delays.

The introductory price for this kit is $950. I am requesting deposits of $500 to get the first run paid for and on the way. If you pre-pay the kit in full I will give 10% off for this run only. you can call with shipping and payment info or paypal

If you have any further questions, as always, feel free to email me directly or to this list, or call at the number below.

thank you all for your patience. I feel this kit will be an intelligent and feasible choice for many applications. We are already working on the next application for this product line, the Land Cruiser 6 cylinder bell housing adapter plate.
