Suncoast converter....

Hey, how many people are running the suncoast converter? Is it worth looking into? My truck has the stock trany with 178k on it just want to do something before I start having problems. Im just running a diy intake, diablosport programmer, and 4 inch turbo back straight pipe. I just dont want any tranny problems in the future... What do you guys think??

I would get rid of the diablo sport as fast as possible. That is going to cause you tranny problems before anything else. I actually just threw mine in the trash becasue I wouldnt of felt right selling that POS to some one else.

All diablo sport programmers suck, you need some good tunes from a decent tuner like swamps beans or PHP

I have a fresh refurbished Suncoast converter in the garage I'd sell if you're interested. Had it in my 02' truck, removed it when I traded the truck in. Sent it into Suncoast to be freshened up (cost me another $350) and now it's just sitting.

New one is $1300, would sell this one for like $900...
