ZZP Heavy Duty Flexplate
Buying and having the product shipped in a reasonable time is great. Having a claimed flexplate that "this one will not break and having if break and twist in one spot isn't great. My 2005 impala SS is very lightly modified, I'd say probably 300 hp at the crank. Drove me and my daughter's to the library, on the way back had a 4 way stop. When it was my time to go (in a 30 mph zone) I start to move, nothing. I turned right down the access road to my house and I heard a clunk from the front. I pulled in my garage, left the car running to grab something out from my house and as soon as i opened the garage door I heard the worst tapping noise. I instantly knew what it was so I parked it for a year. On to this year I decided the original transmission needed an upgrade along with a new FP , unfortunately no Meziere so I was hesitant but I bought another HD flexplate so my car isn't sitting in the transmission shop. Let's see how this one works . Imo the flexplate looks like a beefed up stock Flexplate with a coating. The welds around the gear teeth are a total turn off. Just waiting for a Meziere flexplate to come back in stock, I also highly recommend requesting Meziere to make them a dual bolt pattern.
Nice Flex Plate
This is a very heavy duty flex plate and bolted right up to my engine and torque converter. I have no doubts this will hold up to all the power i can throw at it.

Put this on when I upgraded my trans and installed my high stall converter. Was veryimpressed as soon as I pulled it out of the box. well machined and the coating was nice looking and it is way heavier than the factory part. I have put two years of constant abuse on it running 11.65 best 1/4 mile times and still holding up like a champ. Thank you ZZP for a reasonably priced high quality part.

Flex plate swap
So I bought the dual part, flex plate a while ago got the car all out back together and started her up and the entire thing shook like crazy, I tested compression, spark, fuel, vac everything. Finally got some good weather grabbed this flex plate and threw it on and now the car runs like new.
