Stock or aftermarket. I don't care as long as it has a decent price. Need for trans install. Thanks!

I put this one in my car.... very nice piece but more costly than some of the cheaper ones....

CSR 200 ALuminum Chevy LS 168 tooth with steel ring gear
I bought a cheaper one from somewhere else but I took it too work and checked flatness and it was way out!!!! The CSR one I bought was within .001" total flatness.... awesome...

I used one from Hughes performance, it has dual pattern to be used with many GM trans.

(pace).com/i-5138040-hphp4004x-hughes-sfi-approved-ls-engines-to-gm-th350-th400-700r4-transmissions.html

On the other engine I used the LSA flexplate which is double thick around the bolt holes but you need an 8bolt crank to run it.

It seems any SFI 29.1 certified plate , 3 bolt circle, 168 tooth, would work, many converter vendors have them, Yank, Circle D, Coan, etc, so it's easier to buy without going for the $50 cheap plates.
Check their websites, flexplate section, and you'll see them.

I have a stocker sitting around if you're interested, probably 10 miles on it before I went with a Circle D Flexplate.
