When do you plan on taking delivery of your 9" ?

Would love to see the install. This is a weak link for many of us, so to see one in use would be great.

ETMC does a great job of documenting there installs,you should have plenty of in focused pictures to look at LOL.My 9 inch has been in use since April ,and our 8.8 kits have been in use for 5 yrs, this is not our first conversion but it is our best.I hope you will agree its worth the wait and Hendrix-Engineering brought it to you FIRST

Hey Criag,we use a currie to start with,they have been in bussiness for years and have a proven reputation. We used the rounded housing for strength and as few welds as possible .Once we get the housing we modify it to suit our needs.I wish you were closer!

I can't seem to find a website for Hendrix-Engineering, can someone give me an estimate of what one of these 9" rear end conversions cost? Maybe send me a PM or something, or a link to a valid website? I want to upgrade the gears in my LS3, but after all the recent problems with the Richmond Gears, I am very skeptical. I would trust Jannetty to do the gear upgrade, but even without the shipping, it is still an expensive option. So, as long as we're talking about expensive upgrades, how much is this 9" conversion?

Blazzin1 we sell these conversions, and they are going on our web site as we speak. they are not cheap though but if you have a higher HP car it will be a must..

Great work guys!!!! Keep in mind guys if you buy a heavyduty drive shaft,heavyduty axles and a gear for your stock diff your at what $4000 ,and it will never hold up,this kitt will hold ALL that the chassis can take and you can buy a gear for $150.This is the best and least expensive option in the long run hands down.
