    My buddy will sell his 3,500-4,200 torque converter but after looking at it it has 10" bolt circle with 5/16" bolt holes wtf? Who would make a high stall converter like that with 5/16" bolts?

          That's what I'm doing, it's a $691 converter he said I can have it for $450 but I think I'll go through Cope get a custom converter.

              I had one decades ago, as my first 'loose' convertor, I didn't have any complaints....5/16 grade 8 are plenty strong.

                Problem is I have a sfi flexplate with the 7/16" holes and don't really want to buy a new flexplate when I can roll the money into a nice converter.

                Boss hoggs are the illegitimate red headed step-child of GER converters.
                The Ger converter I had was the single WORST high-performance part I have ever bought, bar none.

                  I've never seen one. Usually stock or low stall has them.
