    Hey Blake,

    Do you have any ability to do machine work? It's a completely custom piece so I'm really not sure how to get one without it.

    If you have the stock intake/exhaust manifold gasket set for a carb'd 300, it'll come with a small gasket that goes between the intake/exhaust. It makes for a perfect template to base the new plate on. All you need is a 1/4" thick plate of FLAT FLAT steel about the size of the gasket, drill 3 holes that match the bolt holes on the gasket, and then drill two holes in the center. Here's a pic:


    Then, you can weld pipes to the bottom of it.
    If you don't have a welder, you may need to get someone to put threads in the holes. Just be sure the threads are a size you can find in plumping supplies.


    I don't really know of any other way to do it.

    Best of luck with it.
