Flexplate choices?

I am looking for a flexplate to work with my 8 Bolt crank and PI stallion 9.5" Lockup converter. I have found these 2 flexplates.

I will be using this on a Kenne Bell car making 600 RWHP.
For $75 will the PRW flexplate work fine??
I would like to see the two flexplates side by side to see if the PA one is worth the extra money. Any feedback would be appreciated.

The pa one is sfi certified. Otherwise i assume you are talking about a 4r70w transmission you can use one from any 8 bolt crank 4r70w vehicle like a 5.4 truck. The PI converter has dual patterns if you can use the larger one use it. All of the flexplates on the market are stock ones with an extra weld or two and a nice coat of shiny paint, but they are sfi certified when you need it you need it. Personally I think it's a rip.

Yes I know this is an old thread.

I am very confused about flexplates. Yes I have used search.

I was under the impression that there were two sizes. 12" and 11.25" I measured my new converter and it is 10.625"

I am PROBABLY confusing bolt pattern with overall diameter. In any case, I have a 94 Romeo 4.6 which means I have a 6 bolt crank right? I have a converter that measures 10.625" bolt circle. Is there a factory flex plate that I can use?

I thought that most of the Marauder/Mark VIII flexplates which WOULD fit my bolt circle are 8 bolt units. Please deconfuse me?

10.625 is the smaller bolt pattern
