    For the money you cant beat T/S (transmission specialties) spragless racing converterss, they list for around $900 which is about the going rate for a "good" name brand converter.
    Dont skimp here - buy a good one and be done with it.
    They also offer one free tweak within 90 days of purchase.

    Heres a link to their site.

    I have had several different brands in the past and have 3 converters sitting on the shelf, coan,tsi, and b&m. The TSI is on its way for a freshen up rarley use the others. If you want one from Trans Spec pm me I can get you a better price then most anyone.

    I know a guy that bought one and it worked great.
    355 trick flow heads (out of the box) .555 lift solid cam (non-roller) just a 750 holley carb. Ran 6.90-7.0's in the 1/8th consistantly. Very mild motor.
    I was surprised.

    Can't beat a Chance convertor. Got me an all aluminum bolt together one and its the sweetest piece you'll ever see. Phone Marty Chance. He'll sort ya out.

    What part of the country? Try to find a company reasonably close if possible, helps if you need adjustments. What are you running for an engine, do you have dyno info? You can ask Marty Chance questions here.

    Thanks guys for the input. I'd heard that they were one of the best trans/convertor combos, if not the best.
