    Anybody here have experience with TSI or Trans Specialties converters? I have my eye on their 8". However, they are spragless. They claim it is so less stuff breaks meaning the sprag. I guess my main question is this a quality converter? I've heard of the name to be around for some time.

      I had seen and heard of TSI converters before. Just not much mention of them here on fabo. So wasn't sure if its a good move. Currently have an FTI 9.5" 3400-3600 stall converter with 3.91's out back. Motor is a 360 stock stroke and a 292/508 mopar cam. Works well but curious to know if an 8" trans specialties 5000-5400 stall will work ok. Car is not a race car just a fun street bruiser.

      I don't recall when & where I learned this, but I was always under the impression that spragless converters were for very high horsepower applications.

        Is the converter loose? Or tight? Could it be used for street driving?
