    WOW I'm surprised no one mentioned. PTC. I had the same convertor for 10 years.....and it has been behind some serious destruction.

    I am going to try out a Jeg's XHD Converter I got from a race friend for $125. He said it stalled too high with his BB 461 @4100, my car is lighter than his so it might stall less, will see this weekend weather permitting.

    That's what mine did this past weekend on the foot brake 4 to 4100rpm. My TCI would most likely stall higher 4800 but this one pull down the track pretty good. Not sure what the P/N was.

    Coan here,I use them in all the serious stuff I build for myself and customers. THey are all custom made. If you plan on running less than a 250 shot of nitrous(if your are running nitrous at all) don't tell them that you are running nitrous. A nitrous converter will slow the car down a bit and you don't need a nitrous converter with just a small shot.
