custom sway bars

Has anyone any knowledge or experience on getting a sway bar made for custom application ?
Thinking like the v8 HT-HG sway bar . it has a woop in the bar to clear the oil filter ........but instead of the woop around the oil filter, i need a woop to go around the harmonic balancer .
Thinking i can cut'n shut a standard bar to suit it then the maker can use the design as a rough pattern

Give Pat Gardner from v6 conversions a call, he would have had to make the swaybar for his new style front ends. If he didn't make it he could put you on to someone that does. Let us know how you got on. Cheers mate.

Got a reply from MAKO and i'll use them i reckon.
Save me replying with a dick question because i'm a bit confused.. Just how much does it work out costing me ? Here's what he said >>

Hi Stephen,
We can do that no problem.
All we need is the modification dimensions because of course we know what a standard bar looks like.

For example, go forward 30mm in the centre for 300mm.

Cost is same as standard + 1.5 code increase to Group Code 5A for the modification and dia increase.
Sway Bar Group 5A ..$450
Allow 5-6 weeks turnaround

Bit steep but you have no choice. That's the cost of custom. Will you need to add that to your mod plate? At least your problem will be solved. Tick that off your list.
