A BIG heaping, stinking load of........ Well, you know.

I put the TCI convertor and new N2O plate in and to say that I am dissapointed would be an understatement, not with the plate but with the convertor. I had heard that it was probably too much but did I listen? That would be a BIG OLE h*ll no!!! I do wonder if it would work well with the 6.1 cam and a set of long tube headers but I know it has dropped my speed 5-MPH. Can you believe that 5-MPH!!! To add instult to injury my ET was two tenths off my previous best. As I stated above I wonder what it would do with the 6.1 cam and long tubes but then I also think that it would probably pick up by taking the convertor out and installing the FJO controller to work with the plate. The truck leaves great but then falls on it's face. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

I've heard of a few people having problems with the TCi converters, mainly on the topend. I installed a Edege 3k stall in my truck a few weeks ago and I'm loving it so far. I wonder if you could get your money back on the TCI and buy a Edge?

I am certainly going to try. They can at least give me a credit. Take care.

Yeah, what are the specs on that thing? I have an Edge 2600 and so far it's the best mod.

I finally got a chance to run the 1/4 with my new converter. I did lose a little mph but not much at all. Before I added P/P heads and the converter I trapped 101.74, yesterday I ran 102.40 with the heads, converter, and better weather. I think it probaly hurt my mph by about 1.5-2, but the 1.75 60' N/A more than makes up for it. That was with a Edge 3k stall with the billet upgrades.

You know I am wondering if I was blowing through the convertor. I realize that on the N2O it is going to flash higher than it normally would and it makes me wonder if that is causing it to flash too high and taking the stock camshaft out of it's peak torque range too fast. Now I am wondering if I were to go ahead and put the 6.1 cam in it and some 4.56's if it would be anymore efficient. The 4.56's are going to tighten the convertor up a touch and it is my understanding that it is after 3000-rpm that the 6.1 cam starts to shine in the 5.7 motors. Hmmmmmmm......... Thoughts?

Just a thought.
When my friend put a KB on his mustang the TQ was causing his converter to flex and it would slip above 4000-4500 rpms. Is your new converter rated high enough to take all that TQ?
Again it's just a thought I may be way off on this.
