School me again plz

On a TC is the billet front cover just for looks or does it serve a purpose?

Won't flex under heavy torque and heat. Also it's said that it provides better balancing.

So an extra 50bucks for a cover is worth it?

While im at it uh I am trying to move out this year *low on cash at the moment lol* and I was wondering what is a more important thing for the trans. A valvebody or a TC? Or is it wrong 2 run one without the other?

Call BTS, they have the PI converter as well as a good VB setup. I would do both, if you can't... then get the VB. A good VB is a MUST with the 4r100/e40d.

Hey dirk, I have heard that runnin a new tc in a used tranny isnt a good idea because it will wear out the tc too soon. True?

Just buy the VB now. They can reuse it when they rebuild the trans and get the new converter then. EVERY TIME I've had to pull my trans when something broke.. I sent in my converter to get checked out or I just replaced it. Trash + converter = damage = more trash to kill the trans. Most of the time you can get away reusing the converter, but I'm paranoid.
