    You should give a few specifics on the approximate size, you could be adapting anything from an oil pressure sending unit to a different engine.

    There’s a lot of machining on that part, by the time you factor in material and the fact that it’s a one-off, $2000 is not bad.
    Even tho you have a model, someone still needs to do the CAM side and generate tool paths.

    It’s a good start, the model is used to develop machine tool paths that are specific to the tooling being used. Machine code specific to whatever machine you are using is then generated by a program called a Post-processor. It all takes time which you have to pay for.
    If you were looking to buy 50 adapters, then all the programming, fixturing/set-up time can be spread over 50 parts.
    If you think about, $2000 is 20 hours at $100/hr. The clock starts when the material is ordered or gotten off a shelf, and ends when the part is packaged, ready for shipping. 20 hours disappears fast.

    I’m done
    Hopefully someone here can help you and still make a buck, at least you have a backup plan

    It's not that big a deal, if it took more than an hour a side to rough there's something wrong. Finishing isn't going to take long either.

    At the most that's 6-8 hours tops, that's from starting to clamp onto the table/roughing, finishing, to starting packaging.

    You do machine aluminum don't you?

    Perfect-quote the guy $600 and be done.
    I’m betting most people won’t be that confident in making any money at $600-800

    That looks like an R150/151 being mated to a 340 series Aisin or GM 4L60E bellhousing pattern (just a guess).

    I can whip that up no problem. Just need to know how thick you want it.

    $2000 you have to be kidding me.

    You just need to talk to the right folk.
