A $200 Torque Converter? Is this real?

Item #: 260375445443

Came across this in ebay, has anyone tried one? This is less than some core charges from other companies...How is this even possible?

I'd put a $200 converter in a gas engine.

I wouldn't trust it at ALL in anything that makes real torque.

Also, the warranty is really crappy.

"Warranty

They seem to be selling quite a bit, they have lots for sale. Guess its up to you if you want to take the chance. So far they have no negative feedback, looks like someone bought one of the 7.3l ones too.
