I run a TCI in my race car (10.91@122) and it has worked flawless for the last 3 years. Their customer service is great too.

Great deal..Whats the verdict on changing it out. RPM drop or goes through the gears faster? I know anything will be an improvement from stock.

It would be like comparing apples to oranges as it only takes 45 min to get the engine and tranny out of the hot rod....i've done it so many times and i have built in short cuts. My stall speed is 4400 rpm so its pretty loose. Last spring we freshened the tranny and had a local converter company cut open the tci unit to inspect it. It looked brand new inside so we just buttoned it up and put it back in. I put several hundred passes on the car in a season and usually about 500 street miles per year. My tranny was built locally with all tci internal hard parts. Their parts have performed exactly as the tci techs said they would and they always go out of their way to answer questions and give GOOD tech advise.

As far as my truck goes, my trans guy used tci parts in it as well (E4od) and he had a local converter company build a billet convertor for it. Again, after 50k on it with regular servicing and a ton of towing (under 10k lbs), it has performed flawlessly. Give their tech line a call and talk to them about your combo. I would also say to call some of thier competitors to see what else is out there so you can make an informed decision. Hope this helps.
