What is your application? I run a Neal Chance bolt together, Its nice if you are going to service it your self or adjust it.

I have a Neal Chance all aluminum converter in my Nova. It reduced the rotating mass by 6 lbs. Sixty foots dropped from 1.14 to 1.06 and ET dropped from 7.06 to 6.84. Cost a lot of money but well worth it. Easy to change the stall by moving shims. Have a spare stator incase I'm not running nitrous. You can clean the thing out yourself if theres a transmission disaster.

Marty Chance is a great guy. Check out the pics of the converter on my RJ profile below.

And as mentioned, change your stall at any time. Those two features are worth the money.

If you ever saw one of these up close and apart, you would be amazed. The technology is outstanding
