    Aftermarket Case

    Looking to upgrade to a aftermarket case. What brand is the best and who has the best price on it ?
    I've used the reid and seen the bte both look nice, was leaning towards the ATI for price.

    thanks for the info

    I alwasy thought the dedenbear case was the better one to have.
    It only weighs 25 lbs which is 2 lbs. lighter than stock oem case yet withstands 2000 HP and because its an S.F.I.-30 approved bellhousing, no flexplate shield is required. You can score one for under a grand most anywhere.

    i went with BTE case and trans speacialties internals...

    only thing about the dedenbear is that they require an internal liner.....the real reason why...i have no clue..but sounds suspicous to me.... :roll:

    the whole purpose for the aftermarket case is to solve the flex issues and not have to run a scatter shield. etc....

    i personally think the cheapest one you can find will be the best choice..
    they are all SFI cert..if purchased from the companys like ATI,BTE,dedenbear..etc...

    unless there this anyone out here that knows something more about these cases than i do ??....this could very well be...lol

    The new REID Racing (Dedenbear) 2piece case does not have a liner. The one piece case still has a liner. Matt

    I'd of snatched up a BTE case already if I could but they are out of stock and will be for awhile. They were making them overseas and people were complaining so they moved the operation to the states and yet to get them going again.
