Performance Flexplate For Chrysler Internally Balanced Engines

A new flexplate from TCI offers strength and reliability for high performance Chrysler 318-440 c.i. engines with six-bolt crankshafts.

The classic 318-440 c.i. six-bolt crankshaft powerplants respond well to performance additions. To complement these performance gains, engineers at TCI have developed a high performance flexplate. The factory flexplate behind these engines can be problematic, even in stock applications, with issues of cracking and even breaking. So replacing it with an SFI-approved 0.107″ thick flexplate from TCI is a wise choice to make for your street/strip machine.

Engineered to prevent cracking and breakage commonly found in lesser quality flexplates, this new SFI-approved flexplate features a small bolt pattern that utilizes the 7/16” bolt to enable use with smaller high performance torque converters. In addition, the precision laser-cut steel material is 0.107″ thick (much thicker than the original factory piece), which makes it much stronger and much more reliable. Finally and most importantly, this performance flexplate has been tested and is SFI 29.1-approved for strength and durability.
