Precision of new hampshire converter quality?

Anyone have experience with their converters? I was told they are better than the stallion converter from precision industries.

Also, they offer two stall options... 400 rpm lower than stock, or 700 rpm lower than stock. Which would be better?

Doing a rebuild for my 2001 excursion with stage 2 single shot injectors, Garrett 38R turbo, and custom TS tunes.

That's a VERY bold statement to say it is better than a PI stallion. If this was true I feel like bts and a lot of high hp trucks would use these instead. You aren't going that big of a build, or into a purpose built race truck, get stock stall.

Oh also check if you have pmrs in your motor, if you do there is only would tuner I would EVER run with anything more than a bone stock truck that has pmrs. You will run a VERY high risk of blowing rods if you don't use the correct tuner. Not many tuners have experience holding a pmr motor together over 400hp. And even then some struggle...

Thanks for the response... I agree that it would make sense for more people to use this converter if they are as good as they say. However, I expected performance minded folks would go for loose a higher stall speed converter to spool their larger turbos. Where as these converters have lower stall speeds to improve fuel economy.

I'm running Matt Robinson tunes, and couldn't be happier. Currently setup to be easy on the trans by cutting fuel during shifts when above 80% throttle. I dont push my truck too hard, but if a rod lets go... I'll just buy a core with forged rods, and rebuild it.

Yeah stick with matt. You wont have a big enough turbo to worry about spool up.
