There's a V8 member who is looking into reproducing these if he gets sufficient interest. I've linked his thread below. At $25.00/set including shipping from Wisconsin this could be a good deal. My car has headers or I would get in line.

If they can be done for $25 with shipping, as proposed, that is about half of OPGI.

And stainless to boot?

The ones at Cars are $3.50 each plus shipping. $28.00 plus shipping. Have them on my car and they are a nice product.

It looks like the OP on V8 has sufficient interest to get these made. If you're on the fence about ordering, now's the time to step up.  :thumbsup: His price for a set of 8 locks will be $25.00 shipped to the lower 48.

I'd like to get in on a set also. Is someone going to post when they are available or should I keep an eye on e-bay?

This thread is on the v8 forum.
Seems the poster has no interest in posting it here. Thanks to Tom for catching and bringing it to our attention.

According to the OP on V8, they will be available some time this week. He was just informed by his supplier that they're done. I would volunteer to keep track of interest here and ensure all parties got theirs, except I'm on the road during the week with limited internet access.
