Billet Torque Converter - Buy one get one 50% off

So, I spoke with Gary, G2shuck, a few nights ago, very smart guy. He informed me that Patc has a deal where you buy one and get 50% off the second, or two for 25% off each. I need one...if anyone else is considering one let me know and maybe we can both save some money. I just called and spoke with PATC to get some info, they offer two converters for the 5r110, a billet and a non billet. The billet is what I'll be doing, it Costs $899 and is what jesse warren uses in his 850 HP sled pulling truck. The guy at patc said that warren orders a whole bunch of these, I've heard that's what his brother Andy uses in the transmissions they build. The stall is about 300 lower than stock...the stock stalls at about 2000 rpm and the patc will stall about 1650-1700 he said. Just throwing some info out there on the converter. Feel free to talk with patc directly for more info. 1-888-201-2066. They also have a regular non billet one for about 650 I think.

Like I said, I need one...if you need one too let me know, be a good chance to get a good converter for a discount. They're 900 each, but with 25% off it puts them at 675 each which is a killer deal and makes this a pretty affordable upgrade.

actually stock stall isn't 2000rpm. It's more in the 1800 range.

That's what I thought too, but everyone, and I mean every converter shop I've spoken with said 2k. Honestky anything stock stall or lower is fine with me. I'm too worried about onenconvertee being 100 Rpm lower than the competition or not.

I do know for 675 these are killer converters...they're a good deal at 900 but crazy deal at 675. I had decided on a PI converter via bts but I cant argue with 675, I'm sure its a good converter, I mean sled pulling is hard as crap on parts...and warren has a ton of passes on his.

Sweet did you wanna go in on a patc converter with me...didn't think so. Lol but thanks for sharing.

Yeah, warren said he just to try something else see how it worked. Andy had a dispute over shipping or something with patc and i think that had something to do with the switch. I know he has tons of pulls on his patc. I'm sure they're both good. If patc has changed anything with their converters I haven't seen it anywhere. I don't doubt the quality of patc or pi.

The price (as mentioned) is $675. It was kind of buried. It is a heck of a deal for sure and at least has held up in one truck really well. I will say that they look like quality pieces but I have no experience as to whether they are good or not. I know Gary will be running one here soon in his truck. So I guess we'll see.
