Finally buttoned up the convertor change. No leaks, topped off the fluid, cruised it around. Initial cruise the car feels better, convertor doesn’t feel near as loose as the old one. Have to really work the brakes now to try and load the motor up. Rolled into it in 2nd, destroyed the radials, grabbed high gear and could hear an actual shift now and continued to leave stripes till I lifted. Car is certainly much rowdier now.
